Gigabit voucher scheme from DCMS
Post updated 29/7/2020
Claim a DCMS gigabit discount voucher of up to £3,500 against the cost of a superfast internet connection. Beaming is a registered supplier for the government’s gigabit voucher scheme; part of the Local Full Fibre Networks (LFFN) project from the government’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS).
The DCMS Gigabit Voucher scheme allows SMEs in rural parts of the UK to form a group and claim a discount voucher of up to £3,500 each against the cost of installing a consistently superfast and reliable gigabit capable connection.
All you have to do to apply for a government discount voucher is:
- Get together with businesses nearby
- Check your eligibility for the scheme
- Choose one of our packages (more detail can be found below)
- Ask us to provide your connectivity
- Wait for the voucher to be approved
- If the cost of installation is above £3,500, pay any top-up charges (the cost of installation mainly depends on your geographical location)
- Allow us to install your new, super fast connection. We claim the value of the voucher back from DCMS
- Pay the pre-agreed monthly charges for your data, which will vary depending on the package chosen
What kind of connection can I get?
We provide this kind of advanced connectivity through our fibre optic leased lines,
Although the connection provided by us must be capable of delivering up to 1Gbps, if you think that your business may not need such a high speed (yet!), we’re offering packages allowing for the following speeds:
100Mbps on 1Gbps bearer
200Mbps on 1Gbps bearer
500Mbps on 1Gbps bearer
1Gbps on 1Gbps bearer
This means that as your business grows, you can scale up your connection to meet your changing demands.
