Openreach to enhance digital connectivity across Northern Ireland

Written by Mon 8 Apr 2019

Openreach is aiming to deliver ultrafast broadband to three million homes and businesses by the end of 2020

It has reached a “milestone” of making the technology available to over one million premises, a year since launching its “full fibre” programme.

Engineers have installed around 2.6 million kilometres of fibre, using hundreds of heavy plant machinery- and 3,000 spades.

Openreach announced that it will extend its so-called Fibre First programme to new locations, mainly across Northern Ireland.

Clive Selley, chief executive of Openreach, said: “Our ambition is to deliver the best possible digital connectivity to everyone across the entire country. The progress we have made to date proves we’re making good on that promise.”
