Full fibre broadband offers the fastest and most reliable speeds available; and as part of its vision to see a full fibre Britain, the government launched a £67million Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme.
Through the scheme, registered businesses can claim up to £2,500 towards the installation of a full fibre broadband connection, providing download speeds of up to one Gigabit (1,000 Megabits per second).
Businesses can claim a voucher individually or as part of a group project which can include other SMEs and/or residents who may claim a voucher worth up to £500.
Residents can only benefit from the scheme as part of a group project which includes businesses on a ratio of one SME to up to ten residential properties. This means that vouchers can be used collectively to contribute towards the installation costs of fibre broadband to a community.
The scheme will run until March 2021 or until all the available funding has been allocated.
