How do I know which Openreach cabinet I am connected to?

To check which cabinet you are connected to and what speeds you might achieve visit the BT Broadband Availability Checker. For the best results you will need to be able to enter a Openreach landline number for your property.

If you do not have this then you can use your address, but it may be less accurate. Do not use the postcode checker as that covers too wide an area to be of any use.

As we start to get into the more challenging areas, we are seeing different technologies, such as all-in-one-cabinets, fibre to the remote node (FttRN) and Fibre to the Premise (FttP). These are not dependent on which cabinet you are connected to.

With the new technologies we often don’t know until the structure goes live who will actually benefit from the upgrades. The best thing is to register for more information through our website. We will send you our e-newsletter, which comes out once a month and contains project updates, information about local meetings and events, broadband news, FAQs, and more.

By providing us with your landline number and address we can also send specific information as we learn more about what is happening in your area and, provided we have your full details, can let you know when the service goes live.
