More G.fast across Wales, Scotland and England

The latest seven areas to see G.fast availability in our checker and on our maps are Bishopbriggs, Bridgend, Kings Lynn, Llantrisant, Quorn, South Wootton and Woodhouse.

These additions take the G.fast footprint to 1,294,040 premises and with the additional 648,243 FTTP premises gives Openreach an ultrafast (100 Mbps and faster) footprint of 1,942,283. 

The Q4 2018 speed test results are now being processed and in our next update on which exchanges we have found more G.fast on we will take a look at the speeds in the areas where the ultrafast Openreach services are available.

So the rollout is not stopped? I was under the impression it was - is this due to some sort of speed boost by Virgin? Otherwise makes no sense to me anyway

Roll out was scaled back to around 5.7 million premises so a long way from being stopped

All very well having more exchange areas with G.fast but not much use if your specific cabinet isn't enabled. Mine (in Brighton) isn't, though most of the others around the area are. What are the reasons for missing out certain cabinets?
