Exchange Switch-Off List

You'll have no doubt been aware of the impending PSTN switch off for a good couple of years by now. In fact, it's now less than five years before the switch-off is completed. 2025 is the end date with some exchanges already switched off as Openreach begins its phased plan for completion.

And if you're not sure what the switch-off is, or what it means for you then we're here to help. Remember 2025 is the end date and now is the perfect time to start assessing your business needs and planning your migration.

We've detailed the key dates and information you need to be aware of in order to prepare for the full-fibre future.

FTTP Priority Exchanges: 117 Exchanges where restrictions will come into force.


The below provides a full list of FTTP priority exchanges where order restrictions have been applied or notified. Stop Sell will apply at premises where access to a GEA-FTTP product is available.


Where GEA-FTTP access is available, Stop Sell of non-GEA-FTTP products will apply and no new supply will be available on these, including CP transfers, working line takeovers, bandwidth modifications, the addition of broadband to voice lines, the start of stopped lines or migrations to non-GEA-FTTP products. GEA-FTTP only will be available for new supply.


Premises without access to GEA-FTTP will have the following products available: SOGfast, Gfast, SOGEA, GEA-FTTC, SOTAP (when launched and where no fibre availability), MPF and WLR (Ceasing September 2023)

The below list of exchanges had been provided by Openreach, containing important information about their plan towards implementing Stop Sell in FTTP priority exchanges. It is important you check these exchanges and understand what this means for you.


This page will change as Openreach update or amend the priority exchanges.
