What We Do

As part of the Government’s Rural Gigabit Connectivity programme business and residents in some of the hardest-to-reach places in the UK are eligible for additional funding towards the cost of installing gigabit-capable broadband to their premises when part of a group project.

Rural* premises, experiencing speeds below 30 Megabit per second (Mbps), will be eligible for up to £3,500 per small and medium-sized business (SME) and up to £1,500 per resident to support the cost of installing new gigabit-capable connections. This is subject to the eligibility rules in the terms and conditions.

Group projects are when two or more residents and/or SMEs get together to combine their vouchers towards the shared cost of installation. Single connections are not eligible for additional funding.

You can check whether you are likely to be eligible for our rural gigabit voucher by looking up your postcode in the postcode search. The search will list suppliers that are active in your area. Your chosen supplier will be able to advise and support your eligibility and guide you through the process.

Rural is defined by the Rural Gigabit Connectivity programme using agreed standard measures in the relevant part of the UK. For the gigabit voucher premises in the following areas will be defined as rural.

• England & Wales – DeFRA definitions D1 – F2
