Nearly 40% of Ceredigion residents and companies may have Ultrafast Full Fibre today. Nearly half of those houses have upgraded, yet thousands still need faster, more dependable broadband.
Openreach engineers are developing the network to provide ultrafast speeds of up to 1 Gbps across the county after a £4 million local investment.
The latest figures show that Openreach’s Full Fibre network, used by BT, Sky, TalkTalk, Vodafone, and Zen, is now available to more than 14,000 premises, but less than half have taken up the service. Residents and workers in the city and surrounding areas are encouraged to learn more about faster broadband.
Full Fibre internet is faster, more dependable, robust, and future-proof, with fewer faults, more predictable, constant speeds, and ample capacity for numerous devices.

An Openreach engineer will attend on an agreed day when a service provider orders. They’ll connect a new fiber optic cable from underground or a nearby pole to a tiny junction box on the building’s exterior wall. The engineer tests the connection before leaving by passing a smaller wire through the outside wall to an interior unit near a double electric socket.
Openreach will invest in full-fibre broadband for most Welsh properties. The startup wants to reach 25 million UK households and businesses. This brief video describes full-fibre technology, and our build program is here.
Openreach employs around 2,300 telecommunications engineers and experts in Wales.
The Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr) found that connecting Wales to full fibre would boost the economy. It anticipated a £2 billion benefit to the Welsh economy.
