Openreach provides Scotland’s national digital network, connecting homes, mobile phone masts, schools, shops, banks, hospitals, broadcasters, government and businesses – large and small – to the world.
Our mission is to build the best possible network, with the highest quality service. We work on behalf of more than 660 communications providers like SKY, TalkTalk, Vodafone, Zen and BT.
More than 2.6 million homes and businesses across Scotland – from Shetland to Stranraer – can connect to our fibre-based broadband network today.
The next stage of our digital journey is to gigabit-capable full fibre broadband. Edinburgh is at the forefront of our build. Nearly 100,000 homes and businesses across the Capital can now connect to our new, ultra-reliable, ultrafast network - and work on the ground continues.
We’re hiring 275 new engineers in 2021 to join our 3,200-strong Scottish workforce, who’ve helped keep Scotland connected throughout the Coronavirus pandemic.
A wholly owned and independently governed division of the BT Group, more than 90 per cent of our revenues are generated from services regulated by Ofcom.
