Ultrafast broadband speeds can be delivered using both Gfast and Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) technologies, and this latest announcement complements a wider investment programme in future-proof FTTP networks, which is on track to reach three million homes and businesses by the end of 2020.
We plan to reach a total of 5.7 million properties using Gfast, and want to extend our FTTP rollout to 10 million premises by the mid-2020s if the conditions are right to invest. Find out more about Openreach’s ultrafast broadband work at openreach.co.uk/ultrafast.
