Openreach has today (Nov 26) revealed 81 locations across the UK that will be connected or upgraded to ultrafast broadband.

Ultrafast speeds go up to 330Mbps which is over seven times the national average of 46.2Mbps. Openreach claims a family of four can stream 4K content simultaneously with the speed.
