Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme

15th April 2021

Small or medium-sized businesses in the UK may be able to access a capital grant to upgrade their business broadband to a Gigabit capable connection through this programme.

The Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme (GBVS) is part of a government plan to get more businesses connected to full fibre broadband. It will provide vouchers for small or medium-sized firms to help with the costs of connecting to the service.

The maximum voucher value for a SME beneficiary is £3,500 and the minimum value is £500.  The scheme is open to qualifying small and medium-sized businesses in rural areas across the UK.  Vouchers are available to customers of broadband suppliers who have registered for the scheme.

Vouchers will support the capital costs of delivering a new gigabit capable connection to a business premises. The new connection must have a minimum speed of 100mbps and represent at least a doubling of speed compared to the service the business currently has.

Support is only available through a supplier who is registered with the scheme. 

The scheme will be open until all available funding has been allocated.
