Can I get BT Infinity in my area?

BT Infinity is fast and has a carefully sculpted public image to get across both its speed and usefulness. But not everyone can receive it. BT's ongoing rollout still leaves parts of the country with nothing but slower, old-fashioned, copper infrastructure.

Here's everything you need to know whether you can receive it, and if BT Infinity fibre broadband isn’t currently available in your area, some alternative options you may wish to consider.

What you get with BT Infinity

So you’ve discovered that you can get BT Infinity, here’s what you can look forward to from one of the country’s fastest broadband connections.


If you’re aiming for BT Infinity chances are you’re after some speed. BT has two widely available speeds for you to choose from, each coming with varying types of landline and TV packages to suit different needs.

Speeds range up to 76Mbps

BT Infinity 1 offers download speeds of up to 38Mbps download speed and you can opt for data caps of 20GB or you could go for the more expensive option of unlimited data usage. BT Infinity 2 comes with up to 76Mbps download speed and an unlimited usage limit.

And if you're really lucky...

It is possible that you could access BT's Infinity 3 or Infinity 4 services, with speeds of up to 300Mbps, but these are only available to a tiny proportion of the UK population.


The BT infinity packages all come with BT’s Home Hub 5, its most up-to-date router, which offers a wireless signal for all your devices around the house. Sports fans will be delighted to hear that Infinity customers get access to BT Sports via the app and online player.

BT 4G Mobile SIM-only plans

BT broadband customers can get their hands on a 4G mobile SIM at a discounted price. Each SIM plan comes with a set amount of minutes, data and unlimited texts. You can purchase up to 10 SIM plans per household, but only five will be available at a discounted price.

Widespread public wi-fi

BT also offers access to the UK’s largest public wi-fi network, along with BT SmartTalk, BT Parental Controls and a set amount of storage space on the BT Cloud. If you want to know more, you can get a complete overview of BT Infinity in our Is BT Infinity any good? guide.
