Latest Map

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

Our latest property-level map enables you to find out what coverage is planned for your home or business by the end of 2019. It’s simple to use, but please read the following information to help you to understand what the details mean. The map includes:

Area-level information – given at postcode level

  • Different shades of green, from dark green (fully covered before 2020) to very light green (less than 20% covered before 2020)
  • As we get further into the project, postcode mapping becomes less specific. This is because telecoms infrastructure does not follow postcodes, so parts of many postcode areas are likely to have some work carried out in them, although this may not be full coverage at superfast speeds or above
  • As you zoom into the map, some areas change to satellite photo-images, whilst others remain in map form. We have tried to provide satellite photo-images in the areas where there is to be coverage before 2020. This is to enable viewers to see the property-level detail more clearly.

Property-level information

You can click onto the relevant symbol on the key of the map to learn more about what each of the following mean:

  • No symbol on your property – this means that superfast broadband may be available to you now
  • Purple Star (In Progress) – work is underway as part of Contract 2
  • Blue Star (Awaiting Detailed Survey) – your property is in an area that is currently under investigation for Contract 2
  • Yellow Star (Under Investigation) – these properties are under investigation for Contract 3
  • Purple Pentagon (Under Review) – coverage to be provided by an independent provider. These areas will be kept under review
  • Red Pentagon (Awaiting Funding) – your property is in an area that is awaiting further funding
  • Amber Triangle (Unknown) – in some cases, the information held by the commercial providers is incomplete or not up to date, and premises may be shown as unknown. We are working to gather more data on these areas.

As always, our mapping is a work in progress. The map is based on the most recent Ordnance Survey information, so may not include newer developments. The information about coverage or future rollout is derived from information provided by many different broadband suppliers. However, because the information about other providers’ rollout is given in commercial confidence, we are not able to give additional information.

For more information on our mapping visit our Map Help page.

Please note:

Our unique property checker shows the currently planned status (in address list format) 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.
