October 2020 update on broadband availability across the UK, nations and regions

Our regular monthly update of the state of play for the nations and regions continues, the table may have seen the order change from the big switch-on of DOCSIS 3.1 in London but the more important measure is the continued increase in the FTTP coverage figures.

DOCSIS 3.1 being switched on in Northern Ireland had less of a visible impact due to the large amount of full fibre from Openreach and Virgin Media via its RFOG roll-out.
