Better broadband in rural Hampshire is just a few steps away
Posted on Thursday September 3 2020 by Gregg Vanwyk
If you live in rural Hampshire and have slow broadband, you may be eligible for up to £3000 towards the cost of installing a gigabit-capable connection.
The Hampshire Top-Up to the Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme, which launched in July, is designed to target the so called broadband ‘not-spots’ across the county.
Gigabit-capable broadband (also known as ultrafast broadband) offers the fastest and most reliable speeds available – of up to 1000Mbps or 1Gbps. Final speeds depend on the package purchased, but the aim is to provide enough capacity for now and for the future.
To qualify for the scheme, you must live in a rural area, be unable to get broadband speeds of 100Mbps or more and apply as a group of two or more premises.
If you want to know more, simply follow the step-by-step guide below which explains how to find out if you’re eligible for the Hampshire Top-Up to the Gigabit Broadband Voucher scheme, and how the application process works.
