When and where?

There are three ways to see if high-speed fibre broadband is available to your area and when it may be coming.

  • The “line checker” can be used to see if you can access fibre broadband now
  • “Areas now live” provides a list of areas which have now been upgraded and places coming soon.
  • “Expected coverage” gives a more detailed map of the expected fibre deployment by 2016 and the interactive map.

These will be updated during the roll out so please check back or register for us to keep you in the loop.

Please note, the deployment is subject to survey. Openreach’s on-site inspection of their infrastructure will determine the coverage extent, location and timetable of the roll out.

Line checker

Please insert your BT landline telephone number to see if you can upgrade to fibre broadband now. The line checker is usually updated by BT 3 months prior to a line going live.

If the line checker isn’t able to provide a response, or you do not have a BT landline phone number then please click “Expected coverage

Below is a list of towns and village which have already been upgraded to high-speed fibre broadband through the Superfast Leicestershire project. Areas coming soon have also been listed. We expect these to be deployed within the next 6 months.

To identify if your premise has been upgraded please either use our “Line Checker”, view our “Expected Coverage” map, or check out our top tips to upgrade.

Expected deployment of fibre broadband by 2018 in Leicestershire



The map pictured above is an overview of our new coverage map which shows our expected fibre broadband roll-out to residential and business premises in Leicestershire by the end of autumn 2018.

To view the new coverage map, zoom in, and search by postcode please click on our interactive map.

Whilst the interactive map provides more detailed information than our previous map it is still high-level only. Coverage by suppliers does not fully align to full postcode and it is, therefore, not accurate to premise or postcode level.

You can also use the BT wholesale checker where you can see what exchange you are connected to and the cabinet number as well as the speeds you can receive. Visit https://www.btwholesale.com/includes/adsl/adsl.htm to find out more.

The map will be updated every 8-10 weeks as new areas go live. The last amendment was in March 2016.
