A lot goes into bringing full fibre broadband to rural communities and keeping you and your neighbours informed throughout the process is one of our top priorities.
YOUR COMMUNITY’S JOURNEY TO ULTRAFAST FULL FIBRE BROADBAND
Here are the key stages involved in delivering your network.

We look for areas that have little to no broadband service within or near to our current network.
We design our network by conducting an initial analysis of the landscape, looking at how many properties can be included and where the cabinets need to be placed.
We walk the mapped-out route, identifying details within the plans that need adjusting to make sure that we can build as planned.
Here you’ll see our contractors surveying and marking up pavements and roads in your community to prepare for the build stage.
We’re now in your community, trenching though grass verges, pavements and roads to lay the ducting and external connection points at the boundary of each property. We then blow fibre through the ducting, connecting your community to our network.

In some areas we have partnered with Local Authorities through the Building Digital UK (BDUK) programme to extend our network to some of the hardest to reach places in the country.
