Congratulations Peebles. Felicitations Queenzieburn. Openreach is bringing you FTTP (yes, they're real places)

This isn't a taxpayer funded rollout. Ofcom have agreed to change the pricing model that Openreach has to adhere to (on the assumption that Openreach are likely to be the only option - no one else is going to bother), which improves the business case for doing these places

They've already done 3 million homes (much of which without subsidy) and are committed to get that up to 20 million, even before the government dangles any cash in front of anyone who wants to bid for it.

But don't let the facts get in the way of a cliched snarky anti-BT post.
