As part of the Government’s Rural Gigabit Connectivity programme, businesses 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. Rural premises with broadband speeds of less than 100Mbps can claim vouchers worth up to £3,500 for each small and medium-sized business (SMEs), and up to £1,500 per residential premise to support the cost of installing new gigabit-capable broadband connections. The vouchers go towards the cost of building the network and cannot be used for any other purpose.
The funding is aimed at rural areas of the country that are yet to be supplied with fibre.
Once the build is complete, you will need to order an ultrafast connection for 12 months to qualify for the voucher, this is a stipulation from the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). You need to order a speed that doubles your current broadband speed (minimum of 40mbps). However, you can order from a service provider of your choice, assuming they sell in your area.
Openreach will build an open network, available to Service Providers to sell to you. You cannot check ultrafast prices for your postcode as the Gigabit infrastructure is not in place yet. However, there are many price comparison sites to show indicative costs, see https://www.boostyourbroadband.com/
We are asking for your support to take advantage of this fantastic scheme and bring a full fibre future to your home or business.
We have registered a scheme with Openreach and are able to add details of all properties in Pitstone who are interested in ultrafast broadband. We need as many properties to register to help make our scheme attractive to Openreach.
Entering your details in the form below will allow us to add you to the Openreach portal. We will keep you informed of progress and emails you when further action is required.
You can find our more from our leaflet, which we will shortly be delivering to all homes and business units that don’t currently have an opportunity to connect to ultrafast broadband:
We want to submit the details to Openreach as soon as possible, so please register your interest by the 30 April 2022.
