Government Subsidy Schemes

Want Better Broadband? And potentially for free?

The UK government is committed to ensuring that every home and business across the entire country has access to at least a basic broadband service running at a minimum speed of 2 Mbps. So, if you're frustrated by broadband speeds of less than this...

  • You should qualify for a subsidised satellite connection!
  • If so, this will save you at least £350!
  • And the total costs of getting you set up and started could be completely covered!

What are these subsidy schemes for?

Subsidy schemes have been put in place to provide broadband-starved residents and businesses with help by making a very substantial contribution towards any up-front equipment, installation and account activation costs involved in getting a faster internet connection.

Which scheme applies to me?

There are three subsidy schemes in place covering the entire UK. Wales is running its own scheme, as is the Devon & Somerset region, but the rest of the UK is covered under the BDUK Better Broadband scheme.

To find out more, just click on the link to the right that corresponds to your region!

How and where do I apply?

The application process runs through the regional body that's tasked with overseeing broadband connectivity in your area, so there are different subsidy schemes available which depend on where you live.

The simplest way to apply is via the BDUK Better Broadband postcode checker. Just enter your postcode there and you'll be given information on which regional body is administering the scheme that covers your specific property and a link to where you can apply.

I'm not sure if I'm eligible - can you help?

Of course! Just call us on 03333 447700 and we'll be happy to talk things through with you, let you know what your options are and how to go about applying for a subsidy.

We at Satellite Internet have been involved as an approved supplier from the very start of the various Better Broadband subsidy schemes that are in place, so we have a long experience of how things work. So we'll be able to point you in the right direction - just give us a call!

Is satellite internet for me?

No matter where your property is, if you can't currently get a broadband service running at a minimum speed of 2 Mbps, then a satellite connection may be a great solution for you. Because the whole of the UK already falls under our satellite service coverage, we can connect quite literally any premises within the UK to our fast and robust broadband service - and all our monthly packages run at up to 20 Mbps - within just a couple of weeks or so.

There are certain unique aspects about any broadband service delivered over satellite that it's worth you being aware of. So why not take a look at our dedicated "satellite is different" page by clicking here - this will give you some really useful information on the differences you can expect from an internet service provided over satellite.
