Openreach has recently revealed 29 UK locations where it is set to build fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) broadband technology over the next year and a half. The digital infrastructure firm said that it plans to reach four million homes and businesses by the end of March 2021.
Clive Selley, chief executive of Openreach, said: "Full fibre broadband provides a reliable, future-proof, consistent and dependable service that will be a platform for economic growth and prosperity throughout the UK for decades to come.
"We’re now building at a massive scale. Every 28 seconds we pass a home or business with our new future-proofed full fibre network. This has given us ever greater confidence in the level and accuracy of whatever we announce – which is why we’ve now laid out our build plans right up to the target delivery date of four million premises by March 2021.
“We also want to ensure we give our stakeholders – like council leaders, planners and MPs – the best view of where and when we intend to build so we can work together to build as rapidly as possible and help encourage people to take up the technology when it arrives.”
