Our work with Openreach

Superfast Essex is working with Openreach to upgrade their existing network

We’ve upgraded Openreach’s existing copper network with fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) technology. Our current contract is being delivered using fibre to the premises (FTTP) technology.

You can find out if your address has been upgraded by Openreach by searching your postcode on their fibre checker. If fibre broadband is available at your address, you can get connected today!

If fibre broadband isn’t available at your address, you can check out our interactive map which shows the current broadband status for your property.

You may find that your address is in Superfast Essex Phase 4b plans. Openreach have notified us that the build to some addresses is expected to complete later than expected. Building a full fibre network in rural areas is challenging and sometimes it can take longer to get to those harder-to-reach areas.

Unfortunately, these delays have pushed the expected completion date of some addresses within the programme to July 2023. You can check the expected completion date for your address on the interactive map. Here you can find the wholesale price list for Openreach.
