Better Broadband Scheme for Northern Ireland

Better Broadband Scheme for Northern Ireland

Connecting Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland is a country known for its castles, glacial valleys and mountainous regions, all of which surround Ireland's centrepiece: Lough Neagh. It’s a picturesque location and landscape, but it does spell trouble for wired connections and regular phone masts, whether it’s for internet, phone or data.

Landline connections are few and far between in some areas of Northern Ireland, leaving many with frustratingly slow internet connections.

The Better Broadband Voucher Scheme

If you’re fed up with slow speeds and you’re not likely to get the speed you were hoping for through your telephone line, then broadband satellite could be perfect for you. Through the BDUK broadband scheme, you can claim up to £350 from the government to put towards the installation of satellite broadband.

How Satellite Broadband Can Help

Unlike regular broadband, satellite broadband isn’t confined by location; where you live will not affect the speed of your connection. By using a satellite dish, you can gain two-way access to broadband services, even in the most remote areas of the world.

How to Claim

Simply claim your Better Broadband Voucher through our web site – we’ll take care of the rest. We’ll first need to validate your code, which will be linked to your postcode before we can begin the installation. Installation typically takes up to 10 days from when your voucher is fully validated, and your order is completed.

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.

For further details please visit the following BDUK website:

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 follow our online process to request your Better Broadband Voucher. Your code cannot be applied retrospectively after your installation has been completed.

Many thanks for choosing Broadband Wherever
