The Government is providing up to £210m worth of voucher funding for rural areas experiencing slow broadband speeds

Lots of businesses changed the way they operate as a result of the pandemic – moving to online retailing, remote or hybrid working patterns all rely on strong broadband coverage.

Vouchers worth up to £3,500 are available for SMEs to help cover the costs of installing gigabit broadband when part of a group project. Group projects are when two or more eligible businesses get together to combine their vouchers towards the shared cost of installation. Single connections are not eligible for the scheme. Projects will also be subject to BDUK commercial and value for money assessments.

To apply, you must go through a registered supplier.
