Fibre providers such as Openreach, Virgin Media, Vodafone, Hyperoptic, Community Fibre and CityFibre are committed to the Government’s pledge to rollout “Full Fibre” in every home by 2033. In a similar vein, the mobile operators often have fibre connectivity requirements for their mobile phone base station sites, and typically their providers include Openreach, Virgin Media and Vodafone.
Whatever the purpose of the fibre supply, the provider’s occupation must be documented and these agreements are called ‘wayleave agreements’ and have the full protection of the Electronic Communications Code. The providers’ standard form should be resisted to ensure your interests are fully protected.
We have our own in-house specialist telecoms wayleave adviser to assist you with every aspect of wayleave services.
