Broadband scheme extended

The Better Broadband Scheme has been extended for a further year until 31 December 2019, ensuring that a subsidised basic broadband installation remains available to eligible applicants.

The government has made a commitment to provide every home and business in the UK with access to an affordable basic broadband service so that browsing the web and keeping in touch with families and friends is easier, and this commitment is being delivered through Broadband Delivery UK’s Better Broadband Scheme (BDUK).

In support of this extension, BDUK is taking the opportunity to improve the scheme’s processes and functionality in order to deliver a more efficient and effective service.

In line with this, the beneficiary application is currently closed and, following a brief pause to implement the necessary changes, BDUK aim to re-launch the Better Broadband Voucher Scheme in January 2019.
