The Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme
The Government’s Gigabit Voucher Scheme gives grants to businesses and home owners toward the costs of connecting to full fibre broadband.
How much could you get?
The scheme provides vouchers for £2,500 for small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs), and £500 for residents to help with the costs of providing Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) to your address. This means that you’ll be able to order gigabit capable connections from the broadest range of suppliers.
You can put these vouchers toward your part of the costs of your Community Fibre Partnership. So if you have a few businesses and residents who are interested, they could all apply for vouchers to put towards the cost.
How the Gigabit scheme works
Payments of vouchers for each SME – and resident – under the scheme will be made by DCMS directly to us, as a registered supplier, once they have confirmed that new connections have been delivered. So for an FTTP solution with Openreach, that’s at the point the new infrastructure is live and ready to take orders. We’ll take care of all that for you.
