Subsidised Support for Basic Broadband

Bringing Superfast Broadband to North Yorkshire

The Better Broadband Voucher Scheme is a UK-wide government subsidy scheme to provide an affordable, basic broadband installation to homes and businesses that are unable to access a broadband service with a download speed of at least 2 Mbps – and who will not benefit from the superfast broadband roll out within the next 12 months.

Since its launch in December 2015, the scheme has boosted the broadband speeds of more than 20,000 homes and businesses in some of the hardest to reach areas of the UK.

Households and businesses that are eligible to take advantage of the scheme have the installation and hardware costs of their connection subsidised to ensure their first year costs are no more than £400.

To find out more about the scheme and whether your premises could be eligible please go to:


Registered Suppliers

Suppliers who have been part of the scheme previously will need to re-register if they wish to continue to provide access to the scheme, which was relaunched in January 2019. 

The list below is those suppliers registered under the old scheme and may provide coverage within the North Yorkshire region.  As they each become re-registered, they will be listed on the Government website above, but you may wish to make contact with the various companies in advance.
