Midland Telecom is proud to be selected as a approved government supplier of gigabit circuits.
About the scheme…
The Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme is part of the Local Full Fibre Networks Programme, which has an objective of growing full fibre coverage throughout the UK.
In late 2017, the programme started to test its approach to the market stimulation. £10m was given to launch a trial project across the country, including £2m on market test for voucher scheme. The national launch of the scheme has been designed to build on the lessons learned from the market test. Full Fibre broadband connections offer the fastest and most reliable speeds available, the government is committed to a vision of a full fibre Britain. In March 2018, a £67m Gigabit Voucher Scheme was announced.
Gigabit broadband vouchers can be used by small businesses and the local communities around them to contribute to the installation cost of faster connections using gigabit-capable structure (full fibre broadband sometimes known as fibre to the premise or FTTP). Businesses are entitled to claim up to £3,000 against the cost of connection either individually or as part of a group project. Residents can benefit from the scheme with a voucher worth £500 as part as a group.
How you benefit…
With the increasing use of cloud-based services, data storage, streamed facilities, voice and video conferencing, and cyber security measures today’s connectivity speeds may begin to slow under the impact of increased traffic. Gigabit-capable connections will allow users to increase download and upload speeds.
