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.
A subsidised broadband installation is now available if you cannot access an affordable broadband service with a speed of at least 2 Mb per second. Up to £350 is available.

Taking out a broadband service under this scheme will not prevent your premises from being considered for superfast broadband in the future.
If you require assistance please telephone 0207 211 6468.
