What is the Gigabit Voucher Scheme?

The Gigabit Voucher Scheme is a government-funded programme launched in 2017, aimed at assisting business and local communities in upgrading to a gigabit capable connection. Initially this was only available in certain areas, but in March 2018 it was changed to a nationwide programme. From March 2018, businesses nationwide can claim up to £2,500 towards the installation cost of the connection. Aspire is a registered supplier: we offer our Dedicated Leased Line and Intelligent Leased Line products as part of the scheme. As a result, your installation costs will be significantly subsidised by the voucher grant.

Am I eligible for the scheme?

The scheme is open to small and medium-sized enterprises. As defined by the scheme, a small- to medium-sized enterprise employs fewer than 250 people and has an annual turnover not exceeding €50 million. If your business fits this criteria and you have not received more than the permitted amount of de minimis aid in the last 3 years, then you are eligible to claim on the programme.

For more information and guidance on eligibility, please refer to the terms and conditions on the Gigabit Voucher website. Alternatively, simply call us on 01525 860202.
