Revised Better Broadband Subsidy Scheme

Better Broadband Subsidy Scheme

The Better Broadband Subsidy Scheme has been developed by the UK government to provide access to a subsidised broadband installation to homes and businesses that are unable to access a broadband service with a download speed of at least 2 Mb per second. This scheme, which is being funded and managed directly by BDUK, provides support towards the cost of equipment and installation.

A number of additional suppliers are now participating in the scheme including BT, via its Community Fibre Partnerships scheme. The subsidy can be used to support coverage delivered through a Community Fibre Partnerships project, but the project has to be ready to go live at the time when the eligibility code is claimed.

You can check whether superfast broadband is available to you using the GoSuperfast checker and what your current broadband speed is using the ADSL availability checker.

If, after making these checks, you believe that your household or business is eligible under the Scheme and you have decided you would like to take advantage of a basic broadband installation subsidy complete the simple online application form at http://basicbroadbandchecker.culture.gov.uk/
