Significant Progress Already Made
Across the project, NBI have already made major achievements providing a degree of momentum and a greater level of assurance, not only about the 2022 targets but also about the fact that the programme will still be delivered within the originally planned 7-year programme, despite the unprecedented impact of the Covid pandemic and even though the Intervention Area has grown by 17,000 premises since the project began.
As work is progressing across all 26 counties in the country, we’re seeing strong momentum across the build programme and are pleased to share this latest build update with the key indicators in the rollout
Premises Under Construction
Premises Constructed & Available To Order
*Can place order for delivery within 90-day window
^Typically available for connection within 10 days
* Contract Year 2
NBI is continuing to increase capacity and construction activities are now more predictable across the programme.
By the end of 2022, 221,000 premises – 40% of the entire Intervention Area – will be under construction. By the end of 2022, 128,000 premises will be available to order which represents 58% of the premises under construction. In comparison, the equivalent for 2021 was 23%. The trajectory seen in these leading indicators provides confidence that the seven year rollout remains on-target.
