Broadband voucher schemes
There are different voucher schemes residents can apply for to obtain funding for faster broadband services.
Gigabit Voucher Scheme
The Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme is a UK-wide government subsidy scheme to provide future-proof full fibre connections for homes and businesses.
Businesses can claim up to £2,500 against the cost of gigabit-capable (1,000 megabit) internet connections, either individually or as part of a group. Residents can benefit from the scheme too if they are part of a group project (which also includes businesses) and can claim a voucher with a value of up to £500.
The scheme is only accessible through broadband service providers.
Applications closed on 14 May 2020.
Rural Gigabit Voucher Scheme
If you are located in a rural area you may be able benefit from a voucher from the Government’s Rural Gigabit Scheme.
We are also providing additional funding for rural residents in the hardest-to-connect areas through the Rural Gigabit Voucher Scheme (the Kent Top-Up Voucher).
