Full fibre networks are future proof. They can deliver the connection speeds we need – not only today but far into the future.
Demand for greater and greater digital connectivity around the home is set to accelerate: video and music streaming, cloud storage, video calling, online gaming and the sheer number of internet connected devices in the home will require faster and more reliable connectivity.
Good connection speeds also provide people with flexible working opportunities and contribute to an improved work/life balance and can be an important consideration when buying a property.
How to get involved in the scheme
If there are businesses and other residents in your area who want to install a gigabit-capable connection you may be able to benefit from a voucher worth £500 (plus VAT) as part of a group project led by a supplier.
You can approach a supplier in your area to see if there are any group projects you may be able to join. If there are no projects in your area, you may be able to join up with other residents and local businesses and approach a supplier directly.
