About us

Driving Britain's digital revolution by connecting you to the world

Openreach is a division of British Telecommunications plc and we run Britain’s digital network business. We're the people who connect homes, mobile phone masts, schools, shops, banks, hospitals, libraries, broadcasters, governments and businesses – large and small – to the world. It’s our mission to build the best possible network with the highest quality of service, and make sure that everyone in Britain can be connected.

What we do

We're a wholesaler and have more than 30,000 people who work on behalf of more than 600 communication providers. So that’s businesses like Sky, TalkTalk, Vodafone and BT. Our fibre broadband network is the biggest in the UK, covering nearly 27.6 million homes and business premises. Our technology is the platform for Britain’s thriving digital economy, which is the largest of the G20 countries.

We’re working hard to give people the service and broadband speeds they need at work and at home. Over the last decade, we’ve invested more than £11 billion into our network. And we now manage more than 165million kilometres of cable, from Scotland to Cornwall, and from Wales to the east coast. But we’re not stopping there – we’re making superfast broadband available to thousands more homes and businesses every week.

We’re owned by BT Group, but independently governed by Openreach Limited.  Openreach trades through British Telecommunications plc. Our business is highly regulated, and more than 90 per cent of our revenues come from services that Ofcom oversee.

In the year ending 31 March 2018, our revenues were £5.1 billion.
