Social tariffs for broadband
Social tariffs for broadband are discounted deals offered by various broadband providers to support households on low income or in financial hardship.
Access to good quality, reliable broadband is essential. Social tariffs help people access cheaper deals and could save eligible households around £150 per year.
Digital Kent have put together some information about the providers who offer discounted broadband deals and how to apply for them.
You may be eligible for a social tariff if you are claiming universal credit or other state benefits. It's worth using our benefits calculator to check what you could be eligible for if your circumstances have changed.

We established Digital Kent in 2021 as part of the Helping Hands scheme which was set up to help families and businesses hit hardest by the pandemic. The Helping Hands scheme allocated £2.5 million to tackle digital exclusion in Kent and a further £2.5 million was allotted from the Contain Outbreak Management Fund (COMF) for digital inclusion.
Our Digital Kent team are managing a number of projects, initiatives and schemes to improve digital inclusion and capability. Visit the Digital Kent website to find out more. The support and services that Digital Kent offers are time-limited, due to the nature of the funding available.
