BT engineer upgrading a cabinet for fibre broadband

Where and when

We're bringing better, faster broadband to parts of Derbyshire.

This includes upgrading 78 telephone exchanges and more than 500 green roadside cabinets which contain the technology needed to give homes and businesses throughout Derbyshire access to fibre broadband.

Broadband speed checker

If your area is covered by our programme, you can use BT's cabinet checker (opens in a new window) to see the potential speed you may get if you upgrade your current broadband service to receive fibre broadband.

How to use the speed checker

Either enter your phone number (without any spaces) or select the address checker. The telephone and address checker are the most accurate ways of providing this information.

The information supplied through the BT cabinet checker is beyond our control, however should you be unable to find out the information for your property, then please contact us.

Ordering fibre broadband

If your cabinet is showing as available then you can order better, faster broadband for your home or business. Find out how to place an order in five easy steps.

Please note there may be a lag of two weeks between a cabinet being enabled and you being able to order fibre broadband products and services from an internet service provider.
