Broadband Universal Service Scheme

The Broadband Universal Service Scheme is a government-funded scheme which aims to provide decent and affordable broadband to homes.

You may be eligible for this scheme if:

  • If you do not have decent and affordable broadband. Decent is defined as a download speed of less than 10Mbps and upload of at least 1Mbps. Affordable is defined as costing no more than £46.40 a month.
  • If you are not due to get access through a publically funded scheme within the next 12 months.  You can establish this by checking if you are eligible for a gigabit voucher
  • You can't get a decent connection through a 4G Hub.

The Universal Service will fund £3,400 per premise that is eligible, but if more eligible premises in your area register their interest the funding may cover the full cost of the infrastructure build.

Please visit the Broadband Universal Service information page for more information on the USO scheme and to establish if you are eligible.
