Better Broadband Voucher Scheme for England

Connecting England

England, the birthplace of Shakespeare and home to Big Ben, is vastly diverse and populated by a blend of international cultures from around the world. While the majority of the country has good connection speeds, there are still areas that suffer from exceptionally slow connection speeds.

Whether it’s at home or work, having reliable access to the internet is an essential part of everyday life, with the United Nations declaring internet access a basic human right.

As part of the Better Broadband Voucher Scheme, if you have a broadband speed of less than 2Mbps, then you could qualify for the scheme and claim £350 towards the setup costs of satellite broadband.

The Better Broadband Voucher Scheme - BBVS

The Better Broadband Subsidy Scheme was developed by the UK government to provide subsidised access to broadband installations for businesses and homes that are unable to access a broadband service with a download speed of at least 2Mbps.

How Satellite Broadband Can Help

Satellite broadband, unlike regular broadband, isn’t confined by location and where you live won’t affect the speed of your connection. Instead of a wired connection, a satellite dish can gain two-way access to broadband services, even in the most remote areas of the world.

How to Claim

First, you need to request your Better Broadband Voucher. We will do this on your behalf, to start the process and request your voucher just complete the forms online at Broadband Wherever, and we’ll take care of the rest. We’ll first need to apply and validate your code, which will be linked to your postcode before we can begin the installation. Installation typically takes 10 days from the time your Voucher has been approved.

If you don’t quite meet the requirements, then please consult our speed guide for tips on increasing your broadband speed.

BDUK - Department for Cutlure Media and Sport

The Government has committed to giving access to 2Mbps download speed to every premise in the UK by the end of 2015. As part of this commitment Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) are delivering a satellite broadband subsidy scheme through a number of UK Local Bodies.

This scheme will help with a contribution towards the equipment and installation of a satellite broadband connection.

If you have already been given an eligibility code by your Local Body then please contact us. We will validate your code with the issuing Local Body and then confirm your order details.

If you don’t have an eligibility code then please either contact your Local Body, or visit the BDUK website using the link shown above, to check whether you can take advantage of the scheme.

Important Note: Please ensure you complete the forms to request your voucher. Your code cannot be applied retrospectively after your installation has been completed.
