If you use providers like BT, Sky or TalkTalk, very fast broadband may get in your way soon. OpenReach, which provides internet connections to a number of companies, has announced a major upgrade to its service in more than 60 locations across the UK, and will be a huge boost for consumers who want to download files and stream movies in pin-sharp 4K.
New Fiber-to-the-Premises (FDTP) broadband technology allows you to trigger the web into homes without trusting the old infrastructure – which often slows things down at a snail’s pace.
In fact, fiber cables are fully capable of delivering speeds at 1 Gbps, which is 16 times faster than the UK average.
With this latest update, more than 560 cities, towns, cities, villages and hamlets are now included in the company’s fiber first plan, according to OpenReach – a $ 12 billion massive project to develop ‘full fiber’ technology for 20 million campuses across the UK. From the mid to late 2020s
Speaking about the upgrade, Clive Celli, CEO of OpenReach, said: “Despite the challenges of the epidemic, we continue to move towards our goal of creating an ultrafast, highly reliable broadband for 20 million homes and businesses.

“There is strong evidence that this new digital platform will help the UK economy recover faster from the Covid-19 crisis, and that a full recovery could be measured in years instead of months, with full fiber broadband turbo-charging the process.
“For homes, shops, GP surgeries and schools across the country, this means fewer broadband errors, faster connections and a more reliable network that will serve them for decades to come.”
Here is where the latest technology is installed.

The news of this update comes as many ISPs are starting to test downloads faster. BT already offers speeds of up to 1 Gbps and providers such as Sky, Doc Doc and Zen have begun to offer very fast downloads to a limited number of customers.
