BT Full Fibre Broadband Coverage Map – FTTP Rollout Map
LAST UPDATED 31st March 2023 – BT (Openreach) has unveiled a new 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 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 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 March 2023, 10 million UK homes can access BT Full Fibre services. Packages start from just £29.99 a month (reduced from £34.99p/m) for BT Full Fibre 100Mbps 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 deliver full fibre broadband to 25 million homes & businesses by December 2026.
BT Full Fibre 500
In the latest BT sale, BT Full Fibre 500 has been reduced from £44.99 a month to £34.99 a month. With no setup fees to pay, this generates a saving of up to £269.99 over the contract. This package provides average 500Mbps downstream speeds, together with the new BT Smart Hub, Norton Security and BT Parental Controls for online safety. No landline phone service is included, but this can be added during sign-up if required.
BT Full Fibre 900
BT Full Fibre 900 offers average downstream speeds of 900Mbps, which is around thirteen times faster than the UK average broadband speed.
This totally unlimited package, which has been reduced from £54.99 a month to £44.99 a month (saving £269.99 over the contract), also offers 110Mbps average upstream speeds.
The latest BT Smart Hub, Norton Security and Speed Guarantee are included in the BT Full Fibre 900 package.
The usual £20 activation fee for any BT Full Fibre package does not currently apply, nor does the £9.99 fee for the delivery (P&P) of the smart hub wireless router – so there’s no upfront setup costs to pay. A £70 BT Reward Card to go shopping with is available with all BT Full Fibre packages – which is just like having £70 cash to spend.
Add BT TV’s BIG Sport Package From £1 A Month
The BT TV BIG Sport package is currently available for an extra £1 a month for 3 months (£43p/m thereafter). This package includes the BT 4K recordable TV box, Freeview and the AMC channel as standard. There’s also all BT Sport and Sky Sports channels to enjoy, plus Eurosport and Discovery+.
