Better Broadband Subsidy scheme
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.
The Better Broadband for Norfolk programme is supporting a national scheme in partnership with Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK), to make a subsidised broadband installation available if you cannot access an affordable broadband service with a speed of at least two Megabits per second.
The scheme offers support towards the cost of equipment and installation of a broadband connection so that a basic broadband service can be purchased for a first year cost of no more than £400 (taking account of any upfront costs and the 12 month service charges).
You will only be eligible if your premises does not have access to speeds of more than 2Mbps, and is not in an area where improvements are planned shortly. And you won’t get the subsidy until you have been accepted onto the scheme and given a specific subsidy code to give to the provider you choose.
