East Grinstead Openreach full fibre roll-out speeding up
The commuter town of East Grinstead which will have had an awful lot of those who used to catch the train everyday to London Victoria or London Bridge will be pleased to see FTTP is starting to be available across the town.
Some of the postcodes with live FTTP appeared several weeks ago but another wave has been spotted along with lots of Openreach staff and teams of contractors working to roll-out to more of the town. The most recent sightings been along the A264 heading north out of East Grinstead and Blackwell Road.
Virgin Media is also rolling out in the town using its RFOG FTTP service, at the moment there is a small amount of overlap between the two but that is likely to grow rapidly as we track both builds.
East Grinstead is one of the towns on the Openreach Fibre Towns/Village list so its no surprise to see the FTTP appear what we don't know yet of course is how far across the town will be covered. The vast majority of nearby but smaller Ashurst Wood and Forest Row have FTTP available already so it is wait and see whether they get to 80%? 90% or even higher coverage levels.
