The Government has committed to a delivery target of at least 85% gigabit availability by the end of 2025 and we are on track to achieve this. In three years, national coverage has rocketed from 6 per cent to 68 per cent.

We are investing £5 billion through Project Gigabit so hard-to-reach areas can get ultra-reliable gigabit speed and have already upgraded over 600,000 premises.
