BT Openreach Expands its Fibre Rollout

Openreach is extending its fibre rollout to a further 98 exchange areas as part of BT’s £2.5bn fibre initiative.
The deployment, which will be completed by late 2013, will add nearly 800,000 homes and businesses to Openreach’s previously announced fibre plans. In total, the company aims to serve around two-thirds of UK premises by the end of 2014.

Openreach is making fibre broadband available on an open wholesale basis using a mix of fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) and fibre to the premises (FTTP) technologies.
