Firms including BT broadband, Sky and TalkTalk all use the Openreach network so these Internet Service Providers (ISPs) should all be offering improvements to customers in the future.
The news comes hot on the heels of Openreach’s announcement last month that it will target more than six million rural and hard-to-reach homes and businesses across the UK – with these latest urban locations stretching from Bournemouth, in Dorset, Dunfermline, in Scotland, Kettering, in the East Midlands, to Sunderland in the North East, and Wrexham, in Wales.
Speaking about the upgrade, Clive Selley, Openreach CEO, said: “Nobody’s building Full Fibre faster, further or at a higher quality than Openreach in the UK. Our engineers and build partners are working flat-out to deliver this life-changing technology to rural, urban and suburban communities all over the country and we’re delighted to be fleshing out our plans with more details about where and when we’ll be building.
“More than a million customers are already enjoying our most revolutionary and reliable broadband ever. It’s the next generation of internet that’s ready for anything. You can surf, shop, play, work and learn without skipping a beat – so check out our website to see when we’re coming to your street.”
