1.5 million Gfast premises passed milestone passed

We have added pods on another 11 new exchanges to our package search and along with some extra pods on existing exchanges this takes our coverage tracking to 1,506,660 premises.

The new exchanges include Bassett, Crewe, Cumbernauld, Ely, Exmouth, Haxley, Leyburn, Loose, Montfort, Norwich City and Rhiwderin. 

Gfast locations in Norwich City
Postcodes with Openreach ultrafast broadband service availability in the Norwich area. As usual our news is ahead of the map tile rendering so the highest zoom levels may not show all the locations until a few hours after this item was published.

The other exchanges on the areas such as Norwich which are covered by multiple exchanges will obviously be some of the next areas for us to check. Two weeks ago Openreach in the BT Group financial reports declared a footprint of 1.7 million premises, so we are just 200,000 premises away from that and with the size of some urban exchange areas this is probably just 15 to 20 larger exchanges that need finding.


Bridgwater is live with and so is Burnham-On-Sea. Two big exchanges.
