Another point of FTTP coverage in UK, but still 78% without it as an option
22% full fibre coverage will seem low especially to the massive number who obviously cannot get full fibre currently but the pace of the roll-outs means the number without is decreasing daily.
The jump from 20 to 21% took 37 days and the latest jump from 21 to 22% was slightly faster at 35 days. The latest bits of FTTP added on Saturday were from the Openreach network in the Norwich area as part of the Fibre First programme. To two decimal places the coverage is 22.01%.
The local authorities above 50% FTTP coverage remains at 28 this time compared to 15th March but with changes fow all of them apart from the City of Kingston Upon Hull.
