Not available everywhere
The BT Openreach network used by Sky for its fibre optic broadband service is the most widespread in the country, but that doesn’t mean it gets to everyone.
By early 2014 the network reached an estimated 62% of the UK population, and that is increasing. However, there are still many people beyond the reach of that network.
What if I can’t get Sky broadband?
You have two options if you want fibre optic broadband and can’t get Sky broadband.
Sky does not have access to the entire BT Openreach network, so it’s worth checking to see if you can receive BT Infinity, which is BT’s own fibre optic service.
The only widespread fibre optic provider in the UK which does not use the BT Openreach network is Virgin Media, which is busy laying out its own network. It reaches some parts of the country as yet untouched by BT.
