The Government's Better Broadband Scheme

The Government's Better Broadband Voucher Scheme is a subsidy scheme to provide an affordable, basic broadband installation to homes and businesses that are unable to access a broadband service with a download speed of at least 2 Mbps. It is also those who will not benefit from the superfast broadband roll out within the next 12 months.

Since its launch in December 2015, the scheme has boosted the broadband speeds of more than 20,000 homes and businesses in some of the hardest to reach areas of the UK.

Households and businesses that are eligible to take advantage of the scheme have the installation and hardware costs of their connection subsidised to ensure their first-year costs are no more than £400.

To find out more about the scheme and whether your premises could be eligible please visit the government's basic broadband website.
