When and where?

  • You can use the “Openreach line checker” which will tell you if fibre broadband is available now and the broadband speeds you can currently get at your address.
  • 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.

Expected deployment of fibre broadband by September 2018 in Leicester and 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 September 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 24 November 2017.
