Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme
Following on from the Chancellor’s announcement on 15th March about the Government’s investment in Local Full Fibre Networks you will be aware of the launch of a national Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme to the value of £67m. This has gone live today.
The primary objective of this scheme is to expand the full fibre, gigabit-capable network to small and medium-sized enterprises. SMEs in your area will be able to access a voucher worth £3,000 to upgrade their business broadband connection to fast and reliable gigabit speed. At the same time groups of residents will be able to apply for a voucher of £500 for each domestic connection – as long as there are business users in the scheme who are the main beneficiaries.
The Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme is a significant opportunity to expand the full fibre network in your area and to stimulate commercial investment in your priority business zones.
The initiative is supplier-led in terms of generating investment and end-users in Local Full Fibre Networks but we would greatly value your input in identifying and reaching potential beneficiaries.
How can we work together?
There are full details about the scheme here, in our guidance notes and you can download the supplier’s scheme guide and a range of communications assets in the password-protected area of the website at https://gigabitvoucher.culture.gov.uk/lbl/
In time we would like to share suitable case studies and best practice ideas with you – and, where possible, develop some success stories in local media.
Lastly, we have set up a dedicated email address for
your enquiries at firstname.lastname@example.org
Your role in this scheme will be crucial in helping us to deliver new full fibre networks at a local level to the right business users. I hope we can count on your support.

FROM – East Ayrshire Council:
Please see information below about a bogus telephone caller.
Colleagues, we have been made aware of a male, calling a resident about Council Tax. He claimed to be from a Council Tax Review Board and stating that the resident was paying too much council tax and that he could get them a rebate and have it backdated.
The resident said that they would wait for a letter from the council. The male caller was quite persistent but the resident was wary that it was maybe a scam. The resident was quite clear that they would speak to someone within the council and the male caller hung up the phone.
The resident then contacted the council and was advised that it was a scam call. They wished others to be alerted as they were concerned that some people may fall for this.
Please remind service users, family and friends that if the council would not telephone about a council tax / benefit issue and would write out in the first instance.
