Homes and businesses in rural areas of the UK may be eligible for Government funding towards the cost of installing gigabit-capable broadband.

The UK Gigabit Voucher will provide micro grants of up to £1,500 for households and £3,500 for businesses in the hardest to reach rural areas (with current speeds of less than 100Mbps).

These vouchers will support the cost of installing new gigabit-capable connections when part of a group scheme and make up part of the £5bn ‘Project Gigabit’ programme.
