Full fibre broadband connections offer the fastest and most reliable speeds available and the government is committed to a vision of a full fibre Britain.

As part of this commitment in March 2018 the government announced a £67m Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme.

 

 

Gigabit vouchers can be used by small businesses and the local communities surrounding them to contribute to the installation cost of a gigabit-capable connection.

Businesses can claim up to £3,000 against the cost of connection either individually or as part of a group project.

Residents can benefit from the scheme as part of a group project which also includes businesses, and can claim for a voucher of up to a value of £500.

 

 

One gigabit is the same as 1,000 megabits – so it’s a big leap forward in connection speeds that could benefit you and your business into the future.

The scheme is only accessible through broadband service providers, so if you are interested in receiving a voucher you should check whether there are suppliers in your area in the postcode search on the website.

 

 

You should also check whether you are eligible for a voucher by reading the website.

Vouchers are issued to the supplier only to offset the cost of installation to your premises.

For full details about whether you are eligible for a voucher and to connect you to a full fibre broadband supplier, go to: https://gigabitvoucher@culture.gov.uk
