BT Full Fibre Broadband Coverage Map – FTTP Rollout Map & Schedule
LAST UPDATED 15th September 2023 – BT (Openreach) has unveiled a new BT Full Fibre coverage map that schedules when BT’s new gigabit capable fibre to the premise service will be coming to areas across the UK in 2023 and beyond.
Readers can track when ultrafast BT Full Fibre (also known as BT FTTP) will be built in their area by visiting the Openreach website and selecting their area or entering their postcode. They can also use the BT Full Fibre checker which is particularly useful & informative.
What Does The BT Fibre Map Show?
The new interactive BT coverage map shows Openreach’s FTTP build plans and rollout schedule for their 5,600 exchanges, with each exchange usually covering a village, small town or part of a larger town or city. Users can see areas where the full fibre build is complete, in progress, due to start in the next 12 months, in plan for the future and not in their build plan yet. The build information will also be updated at least every 3 months. The FTTP rollout 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?
As at September 2023, just over 11 million UK homes can access BT Full Fibre services. Packages start from just £30.99 a month for BT Full Fibre 150Mbps speeds. Areas covered include parts of Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, Leeds, Liverpool, Swansea & Salisbury to name but a few. A new Government target of over 85% Gigabit broadband coverage by the year 2030 has recently been set as part of a £15bn investment programme. Openreach is hiring more than 2,500 new engineers over the next year in a bid to help the Government achieve this. Openreach has also set its own ambitious plan to rollout full fibre broadband to 25 million homes & businesses by December 2026.
