Business 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 to their premises when part of a group project.
Rural premises with broadband speeds of less than 30Mbps can use vouchers worth up to £3,500 for each small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs), and up to £1,500 per residential premise to support the cost of installing new gigabit-capable connections.
Installation costs are postcode dependent and dealt with on a case by case basis.
*Although the Gigabit Broadband voucher scheme is open to both businesses and residential customers, 5G Communications at this time are only providing services to businesses. This is due to a requirement of residential connections needing to be part of a wider scheme, and 5G Communications is not currently planning any such schemes. If you are a sole trader or small business, then you may qualify under a business account, but please make sure you’re aware of the full eligibility requirements.
