Government introduce a Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme

Related topics: Funding / News

In the Spring Statement, the government committed to a vision of a full fibre Britain. As part of this commitment, a £67 million Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme was announced.

Gigabit broadband vouchers can be used by small and medium-sized businesses, and by residents surrounding them, to contribute to the installation cost of a gigabit-capable broadband 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 must also include one or more businesses, and can claim for a voucher of up to a value of £500 per premise.

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

Please note: Connecting Shropshire has no involvement in the administration of the Scheme, and we are unable to respond to queries about it.
