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

If you are in a rural area, the programmes below could help your home or business upgrade its broadband.

  • The Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme provides funding towards the cost of installing gigabit capable broadband to your home or business (when used as part of a group project).
  • Superfast Broadband is now available for over 97% of the UK. Speak to your internet service provider to see if you can upgrade to a superfast service. Check with your county council to see if superfast broadband is coming to your area.
  • The Broadband Universal Service Obligation means that if you can’t access a broadband service of more than 10Mbps download or 1Mbps upload, you may qualify for an upgraded connection.
