The Better Broadband Subsidy Scheme is intended as an interim solution for homes and businesses in the UK that are currently unable to access broadband download speeds of at least 2Mbps.  

The Government has made a commitment to provide every home and business in the UK with access to a basic broadband service so that browsing the web and keeping in touch with families and friends is easier.

If you currently experience broadband speeds of less than 2 Megabits per second (Mbps), the Better Broadband Voucher Scheme may be able to help you access a basic broadband service that will offer download speeds of at least 10 Mbps.

The Better Broadband Voucher Scheme, developed by the UK government, provides a voucher worth up to £350 for basic broadband installation to homes and businesses that will not benefit from superfast broadband within the next twelve months.

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

Ofcom has a very useful guide to improving your broadband speed. Just follow this link for some practical tips. 

Vouchers can be applied for through the Department of Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport – Get your voucher
