MESSAGE FROM OUR LOCAL MP.
Andrew Griffiths MP has highlighted the Government’s Rural Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme. The scheme aims to upgrade rural households with a current speed of less than 100 Mb/s to faster broadband internet connections which are theoretically capable of up to 1,000 Mb/s ultrafast download speeds facilitated by a joint payment between the Department for Digital, Culture Media and Sport and West Sussex County Council.
The scheme offers a voucher entitlement of up to £4,000 per household. By coming together as a group of residents or a whole parish this really means no installation costs and no increase in broadband bills, provided that the users already have a ‘High Speed Broadband’, with the only commitment being a 12-month contract with nearly any household provider.
Andrew Griffith’s team has identified that some or all addresses in our parish may be eligible to receive these vouchers. The deadline for applications to the voucher scheme is 31st March 2021 and installation time scale from point of application is approximately 9 to 15 months.
