Fibre Broadband is Coming Soon

If you have checked that superfast broadband is available at your property and you have received the message, “Your area is in the current build programme”, read on for more information.

This information should be read in conjunction with the Rolling 12-Month Plan.

Map Coverage Colours

Pink Areas

Your area is showing as pink on our map. Parts of these areas are in the Wave that is currently being built. Waves start at 3-monthly intervals and each Wave could take approximately 12 months to complete once it enters the build stage, meaning that there will be more than one Wave running at any time.

There may be two shades of this colour on the map, the darker shade shows which areas we estimate will achieve superfast speeds and the lighter shade indicates areas where properties may be connected to the fibre but the achievable speeds may fall below superfast (based on the distance from the cabinet).

Property-level mapping

This information is derived from the following sources:

  • Open Market Review and Public Consultation that was held and the end of 2016. During this process all commercial providers were invited to submit information about their rollout plans to the end of 2019. **
  • Contract 2 coverage for the CSW Broadband project.
  • State Aid approved Contract 3 potential intervention area.

Some properties have stars on them of different colours.

No Star:

Those properties without a star are anticipated to have superfast broadband by 2019 **

Red Star:

You are in an area that is awaiting further funding. We are doing all that we can to bring in additional funding to take the network further.

Red and Yellow Star:

There is currently no planned superfast coverage here, but the area is in scope for consideration under Contract 3. We will not know until the procurement process is completed which areas will be included in the Contract 3 rollout, and hope to be able to map the additional coverage during the autumn of this year.

Green and Yellow Star:

This means that an alternative supplier (not BT) has said that they will be providing superfast broadband by the end of 2019**. We are not able to intervene in areas where a provider has said that they will be rolling out superfast broadband.

** Because this information is provided in commercial confidence we are not able to state which provider has said that they will go to particular areas.

Please note:

The map can be used to check all of our areas but this facility will only return results for the Openreach infrastructure. Virgin Media and other broadband providers may also be offering services in your area.

Our unique property checker shows the currently planned status (down to property level) for known providers up to the end of 2019. You simply need to enter your postcode and you will then see a list of premises and their status. The information was derived from the Open Market Review and Public Consultation that we carried out in preparation for the Contract 3 procurement. If the coverage has been promised by a commercial provider, then we are bound by commercial confidentiality and cannot give further details. However, if the upgrades are planned through the CSW Broadband project then you can see the upgrades which have been announced to date on the Rolling 12-Month Plan.
