Frequently Asked Questions

How can I join?

Register you interest by completing the form provided and a member of the team will contact you. We will begin the contract process and guide you through the simple Gigabit Voucher application.

How long does it take?

When a project begins we need to generate as much interest as we can to guarantee enough funding. Once this phase is complete we will then begin planning the network build. The physical installation takes around 4 - 6 weeks. 

Who provides my broadband?

Once the installation is complete your home or business will be provided broadband from the FACTCO team. We provide 12 month contracts offering a range of ultra fast speeds.

Do I need to pay anything?

The funding from the Rural Gigabit Broadband  Voucher Scheme covers the cost of the installation from building the green cabinets in your street, all the way into your home. All you have to pay for is your month broadband fee.
