Another 12 exchanges with G.fast ultrafast broadband
The number of premises with access to G.fast ultrafast broadband from Openreach pods has increased to 1,606,553 premises delivered from 5,285 pods. The latest twelve exchange areas we have found are:
- Brownhills (Walsall)
- Lower Shelton
- Melrose Gate
- Midsomer Norton
- Wootton Bassett
In the limited number of Fibre First areas the overlap between G.fast and Openreach GEA-FTTP availability has now increased to 6,054 premises. We also continue to find some additional pods in existing areas and we suspect the amber status shown may be related to a shift from engineer based installs to self install, we await confirmation on this. G.fast generally is best installed with a faceplate filter to ensure that extension wiring does not impact on the speeds, the higher frequencies of G.fast make it more sensitive to the vagaries of in home wiring.
