Contract 2

If there is a blue star on your property on our latest map or the Check Your Property tool has returned the status of ‘Contract 2’ when you enter your postcode, this means that work is underway in this area as part of Contract 2. You can find a list of the work that is being undertaken on our Rolling 12-Month Plan. Contract 2 is due to be completed by the summer of 2019.

It should be noted that Contract 2 data is supplied to us at postcode level only. Therefore, the blue star on the map and ‘Contract 2’ status on the Check Your Property tool is our best estimate of which properties will benefit from the current rollout.

As we always make clear, there is a lot of surveying and other work to take place, so until the service has gone live at a particular property it is not possible to say with any degree of certainty what speeds will actually be achieved, since there are so many variables.

The rolling 12-month plan may indicate that a Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) upgrade is to take place in your area.

Please use the BT Broadband Availability Checker to establish which cabinet your property is connected to. For the best results you will need to be able to enter a BT 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 BT postcode checker as that covers too wide an area to be of any use. You can then check the specific cabinet on our Rolling 12-Month Plan.

The How to use the BT Broadband Availability Checker page on our website contains a handy guide to interpreting the results of the BT checker.

If your upgrade is shown on the Rolling 12-Month Plan as Exchange Only (EO) or Fibre to the Premise (FTTP) then there is no cabinet to upgrade and it will not be until the service actually goes live that you can use the BT Broadband Availability Checker to see if you will benefit from this work.

Please note that we are not able to guarantee that your property will be able to access superfast broadband speeds. This is because each property is unique, and there may be circumstances where it is not possible to connect every property in an area to the new network.

Any properties remaining would be eligible for inclusion in modelling for any future funding.
