Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme
The Government’s Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme is making vouchers of up to £2500 available to small and medium sized businesses towards the connection costs of full fibre, ultrafast broadband.
We’ve already connected thousands of Hull and East Yorkshire businesses to Lightstream but if your business hasn’t yet made the switch, now’s the perfect time to join the ultrafast revolution.
It’s easy to do – to find out which voucher you’re entitled to, just fill in the form and we’ll be in touch.
What is the Gigabit Voucher Scheme?
The scheme aims to speed up the rollout of Gigabit-capable (1Gbps) fibre broadband connections so businesses in the UK can benefit from faster internet, sooner. It covers FTTP connections rather than FTTC, which means fibre is connected to your property rather than a cabinet which usually houses connections for the full street.
In total, there is £67 million available to businesses across the country which is given out on a first come first served basis.
KCOM is offering the SME Business grant which gives businesses vouchers up to £2500 on Lightstream fibre connections. Businesses just pay the VAT.
How do I apply?
Call 01482 337733 or submit your details to the form on this page. We’ll talk you through the packages and let you know which voucher you’re eligible for.
How soon will I get Lightstream?
The conditions of the scheme mean we must connect you within 12 months of your order, however we expect in almost all cases, you would be connected far sooner than that. Some customers may be prioritised based on how close they are to our current Lightstream rollout areas.
