Openreach’s (BT) effort to cover the whole of Salisbury (Wiltshire) with their Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) based ultrafast broadband ISP network (here) has been given a boost by a new Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) technology, which reduces costs and disruption by precisely mapping where to dig new cables.

This sounds like it will speed up the deployment of full fibre.

It sounds like currently in the industry everyone is trying to race to lay the fibre down and also get enough fibre engineers on-board to deploy it fast enough. A good time to be a fibre engineer I suspect.
