Rural small to medium-sized businesses (SME) and residents in East Sussex can now benefit from the fastest and most reliable broadband connectivity if they choose a gigabit-capable service as part of a group project.

East Sussex County Council is investing £0.50m to provide an additional £1,000 per SME and residential premises in order to help connect harder-to-reach groups of rural properties.

In order to be eligible, all premises must be in a rural area, unable to access speeds of 30Mbps or above, and not in any existing government-funded plans for a broadband upgrade.

Group projects are when two or more residents or businesses get together to combine their vouchers towards the cost of connections.

No separate application is required as eligible properties will receive the top-up funding when benefiting from a Rural Gigabit Voucher through a registered supplier.
