In line with its routine updates on build progress, the company has also introduced 19 new locations where it intends to deploy gigabit-capable technology, benefiting over 200,000 homes and businesses. These locations span the breadth of the UK, encompassing both rural and urban areas, including Chichester in West Sussex, Broughton in Greater Manchester, Perth in Scotland, and Pantymwyn in Wales.

Collectively, Openreach’s build program now encompasses 2,829 towns, cities, boroughs, villages, and hamlets. This initiative is integral to the UK Government’s objective of delivering ‘gigabit capable broadband’ to 85 percent of the country by 2025.

Openreach’s recent achievement of passing more than 11.5 million premises across the UK is particularly noteworthy, with approximately 3.7 million of these situated in the most challenging-to-serve ‘final third’ of the country.

Furthermore, Openreach has seen a significant uptake in its ultra-fast broadband services, with over 3 million homes and businesses already utilizing the network, reflecting a robust adoption rate of more than 30 percent.
