Bringing Broadband to Rural Hampshire

If you live in a rural area and have slow broadband, you may

be eligible for up to £3000 per property towards the cost of

installing a gigabit-capable connection*.

Find out if you can benefit from the Hampshire Top-Up to

the Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme:

1 Check you live in an eligible area by going to

and entering your postcode.

2 You need to apply as a group. Join up with other nearby

residents (at least you and one other neighbour) and

nominate a community lead.

3 Find a registered supplier in your area by going to the

government’s Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme



4 The supplier will provide you with a quote, make the

application for the vouchers on your behalf and guide

you through the process.

5 Once your voucher application has been received the

Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme team will email

you to make sure you want to go ahead. If your project

costs more than £3000 per property you will have to

pay the remaining money if you choose to continue.

6 Your supplier gets to work to build the new broadband

network for your community.

7 Choose an internet service provider once the network

has been built, and purchase a superfast package to

get connected.

Funding for the Hampshire Top-Up to the Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme is

allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. *Gigabit capable broadband offers the

ability for 1000Mbps download speeds. Actual speeds depend on the package

purchased from the internet service provider.
