When and where?

To find out if superfast broadband is available in your area or when it may be coming, we recommend using our interactive map

  • If you are a BT customer, you can also use the “line checker” below which will tell you if fibre broadband is available now.
  • In the “areas now live” section you’ll find a list of areas which have now been upgraded and those which are coming soon.
  • In the “expected coverage” section, you’ll see an overview map of all existing and planned coverage for Leicester and Leicestershire.

These pages will be updated regularly so please check back if your area is due for upgrade in coming months. Alternatively you can also register for updates here.

Please note –  each area in our rollout is subject to detailed planning and survey work. The location of all new green roadside cabinets will be focused  on reaching as many properties as possible with superfast speeds.  Until surveys are complete and build is underway, information provided remains subject to change.

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 villages which have already been upgraded to superfast fibre broadband through the Superfast Leicestershire project. Areas coming soon have also been listed. We expect these to be deployed within the next few months.

To identify if and when your premise will be upgraded please use our interactive map or check out our top tips to upgrade.

Expected deployment of fibre broadband by 2017 in Leicester and Leicestershire

superfast-map

 

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 2017.

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 end of October 2016.
