Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme

We have been an authorised supplier of the government’s Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme to subsidise full fibre connections since it started in 2017. The extended £67m scheme is designed to encourage the take up of services on full fibre connectivity, rather than FTTC, as it offers the fastest, most reliable and resilient connection available. 

If you are a small or medium business you can apply for a Gigabit Broadband Voucher by getting in touch. You can make a claim of up to £2,500 (subject to eligibility) against the cost of connection. The scheme supports individual and group applications.

Better Broadband Voucher Scheme (national)

Households and businesses that are eligible to take advantage of this scheme have the installation and hardware costs of their connection subsidised to ensure their first year costs are no more than £400.

Better Broadband Scheme (Cheshire)

We have two pre-approved packages for parts of Cheshire that are eligible for broadband funding towards the cost of your superfast installation. We are developing the packages all the time, so please get in touch if you are interested in this scheme.

Ultrafast Connectivity Voucher Scheme – now Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme

From 22nd March 2019, the Welsh Government’s Ultrafast Connectivity Voucher Scheme was replaced with Gigabit Broadband Vouchers, which can be used by small businesses and the local communities surrounding them to contribute to the installation cost of a gigabit-capable broadband connection.

Here’s what’s available:

  • Businesses can currently claim up to £2,500 against the cost of a gigabit capable connection either individually or as part of a group project. Residents can claim a voucher worth £500 as part of a group project with a business.
  • For group projects, the Welsh government will pay up to an additional £3,000 per small to medium-sized business (SME) and an additional £300 per residential property.
  • This means that for group projects in Wales, up to £5,500 is available per business and up to £800 is available per residential property.

You can apply for a Gigabit Broadband Voucher through ITS and we will request the voucher on your behalf. Get in touch with us for further information on the scheme

Please note, we are unable to accept any further applications for the Welsh Government’s Ultrafast Connectivity Voucher Scheme. Applications which were received prior to 22nd March will still be considered. The Access Broadband Cymru scheme will remain unaffected by these changes and will continue to be open for applications.
