Openreach fibre network reaches six million UK homes and businesses

Openreach has announced the latest milestone of its full fibre network build, with the network now reaching six million homes and businesses.

The milestone is the latest step on the fibre network operator’s plans to reach 25 million premises across the UK by the end of 2026. The company has also recently outlined plans to build the new gigabit-capable technology to 170 new locations, adding a further 1.5 million homes and businesses across the country.

Clive Selley, Openreach CEO, said: “Reaching six million homes and businesses with Full Fibre represents nearly a quarter of our total build target so is a significant milestone and underpins our commitment to build the largest and best Full Fibre network in the UK.

“We’re building Full Fibre faster, at lower cost and higher quality than anyone else in the UK and that is testimony to our engineers and build partners who are working flat-out to deliver this life-changing technology to rural, urban and suburban communities all over the country and we’re delighted to be fleshing out our plans with more details about where we’ll be building.
