Urban and rural communities have successfully improved full fibre broadband connectivity in their area by combining their Gigabit Broadband vouchers to create community schemes with their broadband suppliers.
The simplest way to create a community scheme is to approach a registered national or local broadband supplier directly and talk to them about the community’s need for a gigabit capable broadband service. If a supplier considers your community appropriate for this approach, it can be a simple, cost-effective way to improve your local broadband.
Here is an example of one community in Oxfordshire who have approached their scheme in this way: East Hagbourne Community Scheme.
For a list of suppliers who have successfully delivered community projects using a mix of residential and business gigabit vouchers, please see below. We will continue to update this list as they are completed.
