Gigabit Voucher Scheme

Launched by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) as part of its Local Full Fibre Networks Programme, The Gigabit Voucher Scheme is a government-funded programme launched in 2017, aimed at assisting business and local communities in upgrading to a gigabit capable connection.

Why get a Dedicated Internet Connection with this scheme?

  • You’ll benefit from speeds of between 100 Mbps to 1Gbps (or 1,000 Mbps) – the average UK standard broadband speed which is just 11Mbps

  • It is crucial for supporting effective remote working, data back-up and cloud-connection, which assists everything from applications to hosted telephony

  • It’s highly scalable, reliable and quick, meaning you can provide exceptional customer service by reducing delays and downtime in high-traffic periods

  • It will help boost productivity amongst employees by reducing lag time and providing them with a connection they can rely on

  • Copper phone lines (used within standard broadband/ADSL connections) will soon become outdated – the DCMS plans to connect the whole of the UK with full-fibre broadband by 2033 as part of the government’s £200 million investment plan
What does the voucher cover?

Using one of our pre-registered packages, the Voucher contributes toward the following qualifying costs up to a maximum of £2500:

  • New circuit connection costs (or alternatively provides a monthly discount where we already offer free connection on a 3-year contract term)
  • Router hardware (up to £250)
  • Excess construction charges
