Openreach has identified 29 towns, cities and boroughs for FTTP roll outs over the coming 18 months. Overall, 103 locations across the UK have now been included in Openreach’s Fibre First programme.
Openreach this year raised its target for full fibre connections from three to four million premises by March 2021, with an ambition to reach 15 million by the mid-2020s and ultimately the majority of the UK if the right investment conditions are in place.
CEO Clive Selley said: "We’re now building at a massive scale. Every 28 seconds we pass a home or business with our new full fibre network."
