Over 40 London locations to access faster broadband

A recent report has announced that over 765,000 businesses and homes in the UK capital are soon to receive from a major full fibre upgrade. The epic rollout is set extend to some of the most heavily populated locations like Battersea, Croydon and Poplar.

At present, over 1.29 million business premises and domestic addresses across London enjoy access to full fibre broadband. However, as part of an expansion initiative from then BT owned ISP Openreach, 41 new locations in London will get connected.

Openreach’s London regional director for Openreach, Niraj Jassy, commented that no operator in Europe was building further or faster and it has no plans to stop expansion. It aims to reach deeper into the region connecting more towns, cities and rural communities. He added:

“Once Full Fibre is available where you live, you’ll need to place an order to get connected and we’ll do the rest. Openreach’s network offers the widest choice of providers such as BT, Sky, TalkTalk, and Zen which means people have lots of choice and can get a great deal.”

Talk Talk has published its updated plan to build a full fibre broadband network to reach a further 517 locations across the country to provide coverage to another 2.7 million businesses and homes. The plans are part of the £15 billion Openreach project to update the Britain’s broadband infrastructure, enabling 25 million businesses and homes to access gigabit-capable services by the close of 2026. This includes 6.2 million customers in more remote areas.
