In parallel to switching off the PSTN network, Openreach are rolling out their fibre broadband network.
To expedite the transition between networks, they have identified and published a list of Priority Exchanges throughout the British Isles where they will be focussing their efforts to get FTTP (Fibre-to-the-Premises) rolled out. When FTTP is available to more than 75% of properties within the catchment of an exchange then they will move to Stop Sell with WLR products, meaning everyone (business and consumer) will need to move to an IP service for new orders.
The current list of Priority Exchanges and their intended Stop Sell dates are shown in the map below (dates correct at time of publication).
In parallel to switching off the PSTN network, Openreach are continuing the ongoing expansion and roll out of their fibre broadband network.
