Openreach livery in NI


[link to this post]
 
Something of a bus-spottery question. Has anyone ever sighted an Openreach-liveried BT fleet vehicle in Northern Ireland?

As far as I have observed they all wear the generic BT livery here, even the cherry-picker vans.

Nope, there none. Openreach is in the mainland UK only whilst BT in Ireland, including the engineers are treated as a separate division.

I thought a lot of the NI engineers were contracted? Could be wrong and misinformation given.

Think they did bring in some contractors to help with FTTC rollout and installs.

Don't think so. A lot of the phone engineer types have been around since they were government employees wink

Interesting, thanks for all the answers!

I didn't realise that OR doesn't exist in our wee corner of the world. Following-up from the answers here I found a page of BT Ireland services for which they act as "agents" for BTW and OR:

That's today's "thing I learned".
