Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme information

Here is the information required to ascertain if your premises is eligible for vouchers and how you can apply for them.



The government is committed to delivering lightning-fast, reliable broadband across the UK. 

Project Gigabit is the government’s £5 billion programme that targets hard-to-reach areas where it is more difficult and more expensive to build digital infrastructure.  The majority of the rollout will come through local and regional contracts, providing subsidies to suppliers to extend their gigabit-capable networks to premises that are unlikely to be reached otherwise.

The Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme (GBVS) is part of Project Gigabit, focused on helping specific people and communities upgrade their broadband connection.  It mainly operates in areas where there is no coverage of a Unique Property Reference Number (UPRN) by a Project Gigabit procurement or contract.

Eligible homes and businesses can apply for up to £4,500 to cover the costs of a gigabit-capable connection.
