Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme

The Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme supports the cost of installing full fibre broadband connections direct to businesses for the fastest and most reliable gigabit-capable broadband speeds available.

Through the scheme SMEs can claim up to £2,500 against the cost of full fibre broadband connection, either individually or as part of a group project. Residents can also benefit from the scheme as part of a group project and can claim for a voucher of up to £500.

The Scheme is operated by Broadband Delivery UK, and not Connecting Shropshire or Shropshire Council.

How to apply: 

The scheme is only accessible through broadband service providers that have registered to be part of the scheme, so businesses/community groups interested in benefitting from a voucher should:

  1. Check whether they are eligible for a voucher here.
  2. Then check whether there are registered suppliers in the area using the postcode search here.

Vouchers are issued to the supplier only to offset the cost of installation to your premises.

For full details about eligibility, to find a full fibre broadband supplier or read some case studies, go to: https://gigabitvoucher.culture.gov.uk/

As the Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme is supplier-led, any queries should be directed to your chosen supplier. For a list of suppliers operating in your area, please visit: https://gigabitvoucher.culture.gov.uk/for-businesses/suppliers/
