What is a gigabit connection and am I eligible?

Britain has 95% coverage for superfast broadband with speeds of 24Mbps or even higher. The problem is, most superfast connections depend on copper telephone wiring, and are limited in the speeds they can provide. For the quickest and most reliable broadband, with the ability to deliver gigabit speeds, a full fibre connection is needed.

One gigabit is equivalent to 1,000 megabits, a giant leap in connection speeds that could benefit you or your business in the future. Full fibre also uses symmetrical connections, which means; your download and upload speeds can be the same.

Full fibre networks are the future of business and getting prepared for gigabit speeds is a crucial step forward.

There is a greater and greater demand for digital connectivity, which is set to speed up. Moving forward, full fibre connections will be able to support the demand made by online businesses, internet-connected devices, cloud storage, cybersecurity, back-ups, streamed services, voice and video conferencing and employees working flexibly with access to company systems.

If you are an SME*, you may be eligible for a gigabit voucher with a value up to £3,000 helping to upgrade your business broadband to a faster and more reliable connection with a gigabit-capable infrastructure.
