On 15th March 2018, we announced that we will be extending the scheme across the whole of the UK. We plan to launch the national scheme by the end of March 2018 – please check back here for updates. The availability of the scheme in your area will rely on broadband suppliers, so if you are interested in benefiting from the scheme you may wish to contact your existing supplier and encourage them to take part.
We will open registration for new suppliers shortly.
The market test in the four UK areas will continue until the launch of the national scheme.
The Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme offers vouchers worth up to £3,000 to support the capital costs of getting new gigabit capable connections for businesses. In the Bristol and Bath & North East Somerset area, we are also making vouchers worth up to £500 available to connect homes.
Coventry and Warwickshire (North Warwickshire, Nuneaton and Bedworth, Rugby, Stratford-on-Avon, Warwick)

This test is part of the Local Full Fibre Networks programme a £200 million programme helping to fund local led projects across the UK to leverage local and commercial investment in full fibre, which is the “gold standard” for fast and reliable broadband.
