BT Full Fibre Broadband Coverage Map
LAST UPDATED 24th September 2021 – BT (Openreach) has unveiled an updated BT Full Fibre coverage map that details when BT’s new gigabit capable fibre to the premise service will be coming to areas across the UK.
Readers can check when BT Full Fibre (also known as BT FTTP) will be coming to their area by visiting the Openreach website and selecting their area from the drop down list. They can also use the BT Full Fibre checker which is particularly useful.
What Does The BT Fibre Map Show?
The interactive coverage map currently shows Openreach’s FTTP plans for their Fibre First Towns, Cities & Boroughs and the Rural Market Towns & Villages Build Programme. Users will be able to see areas where the full fibre build is complete, in progress, due to start in the next 3 months and in plan between now & 2024. The map does not indicate full fibre deployment related to other programmes such as BDUK, new sites, other smaller scale programmes or infill.
How Many Homes Can Currently Get BT Full Fibre?
