Gigabit Broadband Voucher

Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme

ARE YOU READY?

Full fibre broadband connections offer the fastest and most reliable speeds available, and the government is committed to a vision of a full fibre Britain. As part of this commitment in March 2018 a £67 million Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme was announced.

Gigabit vouchers can be used by small and medium sized businesses and the local communities surrounding them to contribute to the installation cost of a gigabit capable connection.

Businesses can claim up to £3,000 against the cost of connection and router either individually or as part of a group project. Residents can benefit from the scheme as part of a group project which also includes businesses, and can claim for a voucher of up to a value of £500.

One gigabit is the same as 1,000 megabits – so it’s a big leap forward in connection speeds that could benefit you and your business into the future.

To qualify you simply have to meet the following criteria;

  • Order a service on a 1Gb/s circuit with at least 100Mb/s Internet access turned on
  • Be an SME

Am I eligible?

The scheme is available for small to medium sized enterprises.

A small to medium sized enterprise is defined as one that employs fewer than 250 people and has an annual turnover not exceeding €50 million, and/or an annual balance sheet total not exceeding €43 million. This includes sole traders.

You must not have received more than the permitted amount of de minimis aid in the last 3 years.
