A Map of 570 UK BT Exchanges Not on the Broadband Delivery UK Plan

Thursday, Jun 26th, 2014 (12:37 pm) - Score 4,966

Telecoms analyst Point Topic has uploaded an interesting new map of the United Kingdom, which highlights the location of 570 telephone exchanges that aren’t on any of the current lists from BT for their superfast broadband (FTTC/P) roll-out (commercially or via the Government’s Broadband Delivery UK scheme).

However it’s important to stress that many of the exchanges are in so-called BDUK areas, which means that they might still pop-up in the future as part of the Government’s national scheme to make fixed line superfast broadband speeds of 25Mbps+ available to 95% of the country by 2017. On the other hand some will be left out until a clear target for reaching 100% is set.

In other words, it’s a fluid situation and there aren’t many conclusions that can be drawn from the map itself. As you’d expect, many of the exchanges are just outside of the big cities and towns or link to areas that would perhaps be considered within the final 5-10% or so. Equally there are other ISPs working separately to help rural areas, such as B4RN and Gigaclear, which won’t be reflected below.
