The Better Broadband Scheme has been extended for a further year until 31st December 2019, ensuring that a subsidised basic broadband installation remains available to eligible applicants.
In support of this extension, Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK), the broadband delivery arm of the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sports, is taking the opportunity to improve the scheme’s processes and functionality in order to deliver a more efficient and effective service.
The previous application process closed at midday on 31st December 2018 and, following a brief pause to implement the necessary changes, BDUK aim to re-launch the Better Broadband Scheme in January 2019.
Any applications submitted before 31st December 2018 will be processed by Superfast North Yorkshire before the 11th January 2019.
When we have more information on the new application process we will provide details on this page.
