Openreach Adds 551 UK Locations to FTTP Broadband Rollout

OR has added 551 new UK cities and towns to the rollout plan for their gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband ISP network. The latest batch of locations accounts for a total of 5 million extra premises, all of which will be upgraded as part of their £15bn project to cover 25 million premises by December 2026.

Virtually all of today’s additions are focused on urban or suburban areas, stretching from Bournemouth, in Dorset, Dunfermline, in Scotland, Kettering, in the East Midlands, to Sunderland in the North East, and Wrexham, in Wales.

The updated list (which is not 100% of their rollout) is here

It also includes slightly more detail on expected build timelines.

FTTP is creeping towards my area. One of the big towns next to me, Rochdale, is now on the list, as well as the other sub exchanges of Heywood and Littleborough.

I'm not sure if my exchange will eventually come under Rochdale or Oldham. I'm thinking Oldham as though I've got a Rochdale area code the exchange post code is in Oldham.

I wonder if these lists are coming out once a month?

Openreach added 551 locations for FTTP including Telford between 2021 and 2026:
Telford and Wrekin Dawley Yes
Telford and Wrekin Hollinswood Yes
Telford and Wrekin Newport Yes
Telford and Wrekin Oakengates Yes
Telford and Wrekin Cuckoo Oak is left out between 2021-2026 – I am fuming! I hate you Openreach!

After 12 months contract has expired, I will downgraded to FTTC 40/10 and stay there forever! I don't care anymore as I hate internet now.  :D

They have made a right balls up of the map update, locations where a build was starting or underway now lumped back into the by 2026 category. Areas just announced by 2025 talk about vague...

It would be nice if the map was more accurate, I appreciate the need for commercial sensitivity and all that but please; its 2021 Openreach are the major player and I doubt they have to worry too much about being overbuilt or gazumped - the bit players will be amalgamated or acquired as the rollout progresses.

I was just about to post that something weird has happened with the map. 
This area is mostly done and available, but now the whole area is showing in red (2026).

Could be better, could be worse. Good to see some of my local city on the build.

Various exchanges have appeared on this list having had build going on for some time, too, so fair to say Openreach build first in some cases. Hunslet is at >25% FTTP availability and will be complete this year despite the timescales there, Rothwell is advanced.

No-one despair just yet.

Marple now added to the list for April 2024, although its parent fibre exchange, Woodley, was on the previous list, so maybe a not totally unexpected surprise.  :thumbs: :fingers:

Nothing for me here in deepest darkest Wiltshire. I think I'm stuck with 40Mbps FTTC for ever.  :'(

Utterly ludicrous  - Still nothing for my area , all the noise , threats,  screaming, shouting and blackmail (pre Openreach) BT used to prevent Telewest and others from laying their own infrastructure and yet they do and did nothing. How is countries like Japan, America can and have delivered gigabit place to the household and yet Openreach cant.

I think "slightly more detail on expected build timelines" is being a bit optimistic: 21/22 - 23/24  :lol:

My town not listed, although the map shows build in progress and much activity by “Light Source”
