Openreach are the longest running and biggest telecommunications network company part of BT and formally known when they started as GPO

Openreach are the longest running and biggest telecommunications network company part of BT and formally known when they started as GPO (General Post Office) they were the first to install copper cables to deliver telephone services across the UK over 100 years ago. 

Openreach were also one of the first to start building Full Fibre networks although for a number of years focussed instead on deploying their hybrid-fibre stop gap products like Fibre to the Cabinet where the Fibre part of the network terminates at a street cabinet and from there the old copper cables deliver the internet the rest of the way into your property you can read more about that on our about Full Fibre page on our sister site

Thankfully Openreach have now realised Full Fibre is the way to go and now have plans to expand their Full Fibre network over the next few years you can check when its coming to your area here 

They have already deployed their Full Fibre to pockets of areas across the county for example in some parts of Shrewsbury and the whole of Ludlow. 

Openreach is a wholesaler and does not sell internet direct to the public many of the biggest Internet Services Providers sell their services using the Openreach network its worth noting not all offer Full Fibre products yet.

Full Fibre ltd which has a consumer facing brand called Fibre Heroes have been building Full Fibre networks across forgotten market towns in the UK.  

In Shropshire they started deploying their network in the Cherry Orchard area of Shrewsbury in conjunction with Air Band an area of town that had been neglected by Openreach meaning many residents could only get basic copper only ADSL broadband with very slow speeds and Openreach had no plans to even bring their Hybrid Fibre to the Cabinet service let alone Full Fibre. 

After a successful deployment in Cherry Orchard in 2019 Fibre Heroes started expanding their network across the rest of Shrewsbury which should be fully live this year (2022). 

Even better news after getting some investment Fibre Heroes are expanding their network across Shropshire to include the following towns making them one of the biggest Full Fibre networks in Shropshire:  

  • Shrewsbury
  • Bayston Hill  
  • Oswestry
