Community fibre partnerships
Working with communities on fibre solutions, when they aren’t currently covered by BDUK or commercial fibre plans.
We’re proud to have connected over 26 million properties to our fibre broadband network, including 3 million that were part-funded by Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK). We’re committed to continue to help the Government achieve 95% fibre coverage by the end of 2017. However, we also want to go further and are always searching for ways to reach the last 5%.
Delivering fibre to the hardest to reach communities is a big challenge. In rural areas we often face long distances and challenging terrain, whereas in more urban we have the added complexity of working in busy streets with limited space for new network.
We're committed to working with all communities to find a fibre solution. Our community fibre partnership scheme is designed to help deliver this. Our ambition is never to say 'no' and we want to work together with communities to find a suitable and affordable option to bring fibre to your area. For more information see our FAQs.
