Openreach to open 118 exchanges for switchover

Last week saw the resumption of the Openreach briefings about shifting their network from analogue to digital (Openreach are the ‘network rail’ equivalent for mainly BT/Talk Talk/Sky et al across the UK).

Openreach stated that their analogue to digital pilots in Mildenhall & Salisbury were going well and they are planning to roll out the ‘Salisbury’ model (optical fibre to the home) to a further 118 Openreach exchanges around the UK by June 2021 (see list below).

This means in effect that from June 2021, any new service telephone / broadband provided to any of those 118 exchange areas will be done on the basis of an optical fibre installation rather than a copper one, implications are that the line will be fully digital – just to reiterate that it is for home moves or new installations that this deadline will apply for; existing services will remain on analogue over a copper network until changed or the 2025 deadline is hit.
