The Better Internet Dashboard is a tool designed to understand the local fibre deployment situation in your area within the UK.
To achieve this we collate various sources of information to help you make data backed decisions.
When you enter a house number and postcode, we'll lookup a bunch of service providers, overlay local planned roadworks, and give cellular coverage information.
The intention of The Better Internet Dashboard is to provide an information dense view without being overwhelming. Before, I'd be using multiple sites to work out everything that's now possible to do on a single page.
That said, for things to continue being useful, new additions need to come.
You would like to see a feature? Okay, contact me using the contact form. If there's something lacking that would be valueable to you, then absolutely let me know and I will see what I can do. I have no fixed roadmap.
If something doesn't seem to work correctly, the chances are that I don't know about it. Please do let me know with the contact form.
Some providers (most smaller altnets) give some indication as to if they're targetting an area. If you're in this area and this is detected, the status will become "planned".
For providers which don't present this information (such as Virgin Media and Openreach), if the service is not live, it will be marked as such. This does not mean that work is planned or unplanned, it simply means we do not have this information.
