Living in Devon or Somerset and looking to improve your broadband?

Well, did you know that you could be connected within just a week or two to a fast broadband service -  and with absolutely no up-front costs?

Call us NOW on 03333 447700 and find out how we can help!

The Connecting Devon and Somerset Better Broadband Scheme

The UK government has committed to provide access to a minimum 2Mbps download speed to every single premises in the UK.

As part of this commitment, Connecting Devon & Somerset (CDS - the regional body tasked with ensuring better broadband throughout Devon and Somerset) has launched its own subsidy scheme to help deliver improved internet connectivity across the two counties.

This means that ALL homes and businesses that cannot currently receive a broadband connection above 2Mbps are now eligible to apply for financial support to get a far better broadband connection at their premises.

And if your property qualifies for the subsidy, the entire costs of getting started on our satellite broadband service will be fully covered! That's right, all aspects of initial set-up - equipment, professional installation and activation of your account - will cost you absolutely nothing! And what's more, we'll even supply you with a TP Link wireless router - worth £50 inc VAT - entirely free of charge! Read on for more details.

Broadband over Satellite

We at Satellite Internet are delighted to be able to provide eligible broadband services to your home or business under the scheme, which is operating from March 2016 until the end of 2017. Even better news... because the broadband service we offer is delivered over satellite, we're able to provide a fast and reliable connection to any property within the UK and what's more, get your connection up and running within just a week or two. 

If I qualify for a subsidy, what will this cost me?

  • Equipment? Absolutely nothing!
  • Account activation? Again... absolutely nothing!
  • Professional installation? You guessed it... absolutely nothing!
  • TP Link Wireless Router? Worth £50 inc VAT but included for... absolutely nothing!

The normal costs of getting started with satellite broadband are well over £400 and can run a lot higher than that, depending on how complex an installation at your property may be. However, if you've qualified for a CDS Better Broadband subsidy, then we will be able to get you online quickly and easily - and best of all, for NO set-up costs whatsoever... no matter how complicated installation at your property may be!

So, the only payment you'll need to make will be the monthly charge for your choice of satellite internet package! That could be as low as only £9.95 inc VAT per month!

I don't know if I'm eligible - what should I do?

Applying for a CDS Better Broadband subsidy is very simple:

  1. First off, you should check to see if your property is eligible - you'll need to certify that you live or work inside the Connecting Devon and Somerset programme area and that the property for which you're applying is currently unable to receive download speeds greater than 2Mbps. You'll be able to check what broadband speeds you currently receive via any of a number of online speed tests such as speedtest.net.
  2. If you match the above criteria, then just complete a simple application form online which you can find linked from the Connecting Devon and Somerset Better Broadband page.
  3. Once CDS has checked your application and validated it, you'll be sent an email issuing you with a voucher code and a list of approved suppliers delivering internet services that need the Better Broadband scheme requirements.
  4. Once you've got this, just get in touch with us and we'll do all the rest - and usually get you up and running with broadband over satellite within a couple of weeks.
