100,000 premises across UK part of Openreach Community Fibre Partnership
"The village of Lillingstone Lovell in Buckinghamshire has become the latest community to join our co-funding scheme, bringing the total number of homes and businesses who have chosen to upgrade their broadband under the programme to 100,000.
"Villagers will soon be able to enjoy some of the fastest and most reliable broadband speeds in the country thanks to our Community Fibre Partnership (CFP), which has now signed up 930 similar projects across the UK, with more than half of them already switched on to higher speeds," Openreach said.
"We’re also in the process of building more of the latest Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) technology because it’s faster, and more future-proof, more resilient and more reliable. We’re well on our way to delivering our target of four million premises by the end of March 2021.
"And our Community Fibre Partnership programme is helping to ensure those harder to reach communities are not left out of this digital revolution. Indeed, 90 per cent of our CFP partnerships signed in the last year have opted for FTTP or ‘Full Fibre’. ■
