Faster More Reliable Fibre Broadband for Bradford

Coming to Bradford, Faster more reliable fibre broadband.
Among 29 new locations, Bradford has been named to benefit from some of the fastest, most reliable broadband services the country has seen, all through Openreach’s nationwide investment programme.
Working to build new future-proof Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) technology, fibre is laid all the way from the exchange to people’s front doors, it’s set to get started by the end of next year once engineers have worked out detailed planning and survey work for the most effective plan.
Ultrafast broadband provides more reliable and resilient connectivity; consistent speeds, fewer faults, more predictable and the ability to upgrade easily to meet the demands of future technology.
With these upgrades, they will complement and comply with the ongoing broadband upgrades by the Superfast West Yorkshire and York programme, which is a partnership between the five West Yorkshire local authorities, York City Council, the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, UK Government and Openreach.
Openreach’s managing director for Strategic Infrastructure Development, Kim Mears said: “We’re looking forward to bringing future proof broadband infrastructure to thousands of homes and businesses across Bradford. Our engineers are about to begin a detailed survey of the city and we plan to start building the network in around a years’ time. Our intention is to build quickly, efficiently and with minimal disruption to people living and working in Bradford”
With this new network, both residents and businesses in Bradford will benefit from this as the technology gives users the ability to manage and use multiple bandwidth-hungry devices simultaneously.
Businesses also benefit from the cloud-based services, this will help with making efficiency improvements and saving costs through improved online sales and marketing including better online ordering and invoicing systems.
Openreach’s commitment to Yorkshire and the Humber stretches far beyond making impressive broadband available. Approximately 2,300 Openreach people live and work in the region, since the end of last year the firm has recruited over 175 new fibre apprentice engineers.
