Finally, can you outline what the longest wait for any property and in what area is to be connected in relation to the R100 scheme? 

The contracts are delivered in phases. There are number of exchange areas with an expected delivery date of March 2028. However, it is not possible for us to say with certainty which of these will be last as this will be determined by our contract deliver partner, Openreach.

For reference, we expect build for each of the three contracts to conclude in the years set out below:

  • Central: 2023/24
  • South: 2024/25
  • North: 2027/28
