nexfibre has reached a total of one million premises passed and ready for service, 14 months after beginning its network build.

This has been bolstered by its build partnership with Virgin Media O2, which will help nexfibre deliver full fibre to five million premises by 2026.

It intends to deliver its network to more premises than any other fibre provider in 2024, except for Openreach.

Rajiv Datta, CEO of nexfibre, said: “We believe that we are building a platform to foster sustainable competition in the UK fibre market, that will drive innovation for generations to come.”

Lutz Schüler, CEO at Virgin Media O2, added: “In partnership with nexfibre, we remain focused on driving scaled, sustainable competition in the full fibre market.”
