      Map – Sky and TalkTalk’s 940Mbps UFO FTTH Broadband Coverage of York

      Map - Sky and TalkTalk
      The coverage of Sky Broadband and TalkTalk’s joint 940Mbps capable Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH/P) broadband network in the city of York (Ultra Fibre Optic), which is being deployed with the help of Cityfibre, is continuing to expand and new coverage has recently been added to the project’s map.

      As previously mentioned the initial focus of this deployment has been around the areas of Huntington and Groves in the northern half of York, although the latest update suggests that most of the technically live areas exist in the north west side (Huntington comes under the north eastern ‘Landing Soon’ rather than north western ‘Landed’ bit).

      Overall the first Phase One deployment will, once complete, put the service within reach of about 20,000 premises (this is supported by an investment of £5m from each ISP), although that will leave a whopping 60,000 or so in the rest of the city left to reach. Significantly more investment will be required to finish the task.




      In terms of the premises passed so far, the current coverage looks to have gone well beyond the 1,200 figure touted in May 2015 (predicted to be upwards of 5,000+ now), although an official figure has not yet been released and it’s unclear whether the coverage map is giving a 100% accurate street-level picture of availability.

      Meanwhile the first customers are still expected to go live during this Autumn 2015, with prices due to start at £21.70 per month for an unlimited package on an 18 month contract term.


      Credits to Thinkbroadband for spotting the coverage update and for noting that BTOpenreach’s FTTC/P and Virgin Media’s cable networks already cover a combined 86.8% of the city with superfast broadband speeds (30Mbps+). At present the new FTTH network appears to overlap with some of this, thus the impact on York’s “superfast” total is presently fairly small.

      We have asked TalkTalk for some more information on the current coverage levels and are awaiting their reply.
