Exchange area map

You can use this map in two ways:

  • Hover your cursor over the map and click to get an update.
  • Enter your postcode or telephone number in the search box to see which exchange area you are in, delivery timescales and whether fibre broadband is available.

Key

Accepting orders

Fibre broadband is available to order in parts of these exchange areas, however not all premises will get access at the same time.

Not all premises in these exchange areas will get access to fibre based broadband and not all premises served by a fibre enabled cabinet will necessarily get a speed enhancement. Not all cabinets in an exchange area will necessarily be fibre enabled.

We are continuing to explore opportunities to provide access to improved broadband in all parts of the Shropshire Council area.

Exploring solutions

These exchange areas still need to go through a period of detailed survey work which will enable Openreach to plan the network. Once this has been completed the exchange area will show more detail for the delivery of faster broadband.

Planned area

These exchange areas are in our future plans and should be enabled within the next 18 months.

Coming soon

We expect the first cabinets in these areas to be upgraded in the next six months.  We are continuing to explore opportunities to provide access to improved broadband in all Shropshire parts of these exchange areas.

Important information about the map

  1. Please note that not all premises in an exchange area will get access to fibre based broadband and not all premises served by a fibre enabled cabinet will necessarily get a speed enhancement. Not all cabinets in an exchange area will necessarily be fibre enabled.
  2. All information, including forecast dates, is indicative only. Forecast dates may move forwards as well as backwards.
  3. Planned coverage for all areas is subject to survey and may change.
  4. When an exchange is ‘accepting orders’ not all the cabinets in the programme plan will necessarily have been completed. This takes time, so please be patient with us.
  5. We can only guarantee the accuracy of the information provided here for premises in the Shropshire Council area. If you live in another local authority, please contact them with your enquiry.
  6. To see a list of live cabinets provided by Connecting Shropshire, please click here.

If your area isn’t currently planned or accepting orders there are alternatives that you could use to improve your current speed or provide a connection while you wait for fibre broadband. To find out more, go to the ‘Alternative broadband solutions’ section on our useful links page.

To upgrade to fibre based broadband, please contact your chosen internet service provider.

KEY:

  1. Phase 1 – Most premises are expected to have access to a fibre broadband service by the end of 2016.
  2. Phase 1 and 2 – Most premises are expected to have access to a fibre broadband service between now and 2018.
  3. Phase 2 – Most premises are expected to have access to a fibre broadband service during 2017 and 2018.
  4. Currently no premises are expected to receive access to a fibre broadband service as part of Phase 1 or 2. However, further deployment opportunities are being reviewed through projected contract savings or via additional procurement or commercial activities.
  5. Commercial – All premises can or are expected to be able to by the end of 2017, upgrade to a faster broadband service from one or more of the following commercial infrastructure providers:

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Connecting Shropshire will provide all premises in the non-commercial areas with access to a 2mbps solution by the end of 2016.
