Openreach commits to ‘final third’ Full Fibre

UK digital network infrastructure provider Openreach has outlined plans to make ultra-reliable and gigabit-capable FTTP broadband available to more than three million homes and businesses in some of the UK’s hardest to serve communities.

This follows a new consultation from industry regulator Ofcom where it proposes that such a build commitment from Openreach is sufficient for them to extend the fibre enablers previously set out in its Wholesale Fixed Telecoms Market Review (WFTMR) consultation for Area 2, to Area 3.  This will contribute to the right investment conditions for Area 3 being in place. Ofcom has estimated that there are 9.6 million homes and businesses situated in this final third of the country.
