The UK's full fibre future has been delayed!

After a industry wide pause on proceedings due to the introduction of the Government's Charter to protect vulnerable customers, particularly telecare users. BT Group's Consumer division are now re-starting the switchover for zero-use landline customers, that already have a broadband connection. They will be contacting all those that use services like telecare or require additional needs - offering a chance to switch to a digital landline, where available.

This revised approach has moved the final deadline for the majority of both business and consumer users from December 2025 to January 2027 to switch from copper lines to full fibre.

However, they are advising that all of it's BT customers should indeed contact the company as early as possible to ensure there are no additional requirements or testing of equipment needed.
