BDUK Better Broadband Scheme

Superfast subsidised satellite broadband is now available in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Through the scheme you get free hardware and a free professional installation.

Whether you’re running a business or shopping online, a slow broadband speed can be incredibly frustrating. The Better Broadband Scheme has been developed by the UK government to give immediate assistance to those people suffering with the slowest speeds by providing a subsidised installation for a better connection.

Who is eligible?

Europasat are an official partner of the Government’s Basic Broadband for All scheme, which is designed to give access to everyone in the UK with an internet connection of at least 2Mbps by the end of 2017.

If you are based in England or Scotland and have a very slow or non-existent internet connection at the moment, then you may qualify for a subsidy for satellite broadband equipment and installation.

The Better Broadband Subsidy Scheme will cover or contribute to the cost of installing improved wireless or satellite broadband for eligible businesses and homes who are currently stuck with speeds of less than 2 Mbps. With savings of up to £350 for each home and business, the scheme is part of the government’s plans to get the whole country better connected.

By boosting the internet speed for households, the Better Broadband Scheme will allow families to browse the web, stream movies and check emails all at the same time.The scheme will also deliver a better internet experience for businesses and local start-ups who can communicate with clients, check up on orders and stay up to date with market trends more efficiently.

Applications to the subsidy scheme can be made until the end of 2017 and will not prevent your premises from being considered for a superfast broadband upgrade in the future.
