Is Your Slow Broadband Driving You Mad?

How is your broadband speed in Long Burton, are there any areas that are particularly slow and could do with improving. The solution could be the Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme.

What is the Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme?

This scheme aims to help small and medium sized businesses and residential homes receive a future-proof, full fibre broadband connection.

In qualifying areas people can come together and claim up to £6,000 per business and up to £2,500 per household. This is combined funding from the Government and Dorset Council. The Dorset Council element of the funding is capped at £1million and will be issued on a first come, first served basis.

This voucher funding, available until 31 March 2021, will go towards providing a gigabit-capable broadband connection (1,000 megabits per second).

Will I have to take an expensive broadband service?

Although the technology will enable you to take an ultrafast service, you do not have to take a high speed service. However using a gigabit voucher to fund your connection requires you to take a 12 month service that offers speeds of at least 30 megabits per second (mbps), or if you currently receive at least 30mbps, a service that is double your current speed.

If you are interested in applying for the Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme, please email Gary Lonsdale at, to register an interest with no commitment.
