No More Slow Internet: Openreach's FTTP Connects 10 Million UK Properties

Faster FTTP internet

Openreach reaches major milestone connecting 10 million UK properties to fibre to the premises (FTTP).

Great news for UK broadband users as Openreach, the BT-owned firm that installs fibre infrastructure across the UK, has announced a major milestone in its rollout of faster speeds. Openreach has connected 10 million properties to Fibre to the Premises (FTTP), which brings the latest generation of cables directly into homes, eliminating the need to rely on slow and ageing copper lines.

Also, with FTTP, customers can enjoy speeds of over 1Gbps, which is more than ten times faster than copper lines. This boost in connectivity means that providers such as Sky, BT, and TalkTalk can now offer much-improved internet connectivity to more customers.

If you want to check if your broadband has been upgraded, Openreach has a dedicated webpage that shows what speeds are available in your street. Although this is a significant milestone for the 10 million homes that now have access to FTTP technology, there is still a long way to go before all homes finally get these better speeds.

Openreach hopes to have 25 million homes linked to improved downloads over the coming years, but many may not see this upgrade until 2026. If you want better downloads but haven't been included in the latest Openreach update, other providers such as Virgin Media, Hyperoptic, and CityFibre also have their own fibre infrastructure, so it's worth shopping around to see if you can get a much-needed boost.
