Openreach is a subsidiary of the BT Group that was created to maintain its local network infrastructure. The division resulted from an agreement made between British Telecommunications (BT) and Ofcom that was necessary to ensure implementation of certain aspects required in the Enterprise Act 2002. This was to allow other Communication Providers (CPs) or telecom operators that are rivals to BT itself to gain the equality of access to its local network. There are about 537 CPs that use BT’s infrastructure to offer their telecommunications services to customers. The BT Openreach telephone number 0844 545 7927 can be useful to anyone in need to directly communicating with the division in charge of managing the infrastructure on behalf of the CPs.
Openreach uses its field engineers to maintain BT’s local networks starting from every local telephone exchange all the way to the end users. Given that the network infrastructure is meant to allow most of the telecoms providers achieve nationwide coverage, and the total number of the CPs on whose behalf the local networks are managed, the volume of work Openreach undertakes on a daily basis is enormous. Network breakdowns are caused by many factors including weather, vandalism, thefts and so on. Engineers are expected to repair these breakdowns wherever they occur on a daily basis. Dialing the telephone number 0844 545 7927 is one way people can report problems affecting the physical network connecting them to the local telephone exchanges.
Numerous maintenance activities must be carried out by Openreach to make sure local networks function smoothly and telecoms operators are able sell their services. Openreach is accountable to BT and all the communications providers using the networks its engineers manage. They are also accountable to Ofcom as part of its agreement with BT Group. Openreach is a subsidiary wholly owned by BT and reports to the chief executive of the parent company. Communications operators with special infrastructure requirements can make deals with Openreach to improve existing local networks or develop and implement new ones as required. That’s why in 2010 the £800 million contract was made between Openreach and ECI Telecom to help in servicing and creating fibre-optic networks capable of serving at least 18 million accounts.
Openreach field engineers are always busy visiting different locations and inspecting local networks. They are also prepared to respond to any calls for maintenance work whenever they are required. Customers that need the services of these engineers can also call their specific telecoms operators, but the BT Openreach number 0844 545 7927 can guarantee the fastest response because it reaches the people responsible for maintaining networks directly.

Also every week about 650 network breakdowns are dealt with, 12,000 poles tested 920 replaced, around 85 cables replaced, 100 low wires fixed, 3,000 new locations connected to the network and much more.
Management of local networks that hundreds of communications providers depend on for nationwide coverage demands a lot of manpower and resources. Openreach does so efficiently with its vans and engineers ever seen on the ground moving to different locations. CPs are its clients and pay for their use of the networks.
