In March 2018, the Government announced that £67 million would be available to help pay for full fibre broadband connections, which provide the fastest and most reliable internet connections, via its Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme.
Gigabit vouchers can be used by small and medium sized businesses and local communities surrounding them to contribute towards 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.
For full details of the scheme and whether you are eligible for a voucher, visit the Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme website.
You can also speak to our Economic Development and Property team on 01732 227000 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how we can help to combine vouchers in your area as a group project to maximise this opportunity.
