Why Fibre to the Premises for new residential developments?

We recommend Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) infrastructure for all new residential developments, unless there are big technical or commercial barriers.

We offer FTTP, free of charge, into all new housing developments of 30 or more homes. Where you have fewer than 30 homes on a development we’ll install FTTP, either funded entirely by Openreach or with the help of developer co-funding where that’s needed.

Most homeowners want to know that the infrastructure on a development will support the highest speeds now and in the future. Currently our FTTP infrastructure gives service providers the freedom to offer speeds of around 300Mbps and, in some cases, up to 1Gbps.
