Some areas of Northumberland are able to receive ultrafast broadband (defined as speeds over 100 Mbps).

  • Openreach – Fibre to the Premise

Most ultrafast services in Northumberland are delivered by BT Openreach using its ‘Fibre to the Premise’ (FTTP) technology. FTTP is one of the world’s most cutting edge types of fibre broadband capable of speeds of up to 330 Mbps.

Above ground fibre equipment

In many cases the fibre equipment is located underground, but in some cases you may see small green boxes on telegraph poles (see photo) this is a clue that ultrafast broadband services are available in your area.

We have received a number of enquiries from residents and businesses in FTTP areas who are having trouble ordering. Please be aware that not all broadband service providers offer an FTTP service. This is the choice of that particular service provider and not within the control of iNorthumberland.

To help to ensure you can order FTTP when your premises become live, please follow these simple steps:

  • Check your line to ensure you are in an FTTP enabled area and can order.
  • If you need to change, make contact with your current service provider to let them know you would like to switch provider.
  • Make an order with your chosen provider that offers FTTP.

Please contact us if you have any questions and we will try to assist.
