Project Gigabit Voucher Scheme

FACTCO is currently working with the Project Gigabit Voucher Scheme, which is provided by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS).

To qualify for the scheme, you need to live or work in an eligible location. The scheme is currently focusing on rural communities, including both business and residential customers. You can check if you’re eligible by contacting the team on either 0333 3057560 or hello@factco.co.uk.

How it works? 

The Scheme is a form of Government funding which enables the infrastructure of a full fibre network to be built which will connect rural communities with a capacity of up to a Gigabit of data per second wherever possible. 

Businesses and residents just apply to have the broadband in their community upgraded and if the application is successful, the Government will give funding to companies like FACTCO to complete the build and install the network. 

The Vouchers that they give residents and businesses provide up to £1,500 per household and £3,500 for businesses to support the cost of the installation. 

When a community has successfully applied to be part of the voucher scheme, the Government will give companies like us the funding to install a full fibre network at no cost to the residents involved in the scheme.

Your Next Steps

The benefits to a full fibre connection.

A full fibre broadband network takes your internet connection to a completely new level. With your new reliable internet service, you are leaving behind many issues that rural areas endure with limited connection and slow speeds. 

Benefits that your FACTCO full fibre connection can do…

  • Work from home with ease 
  • Unlimited access to streaming services 
  • No more battles with your family on who gets to use the internet
  • Kids can access online learning
  • Future-proofing your home for any advancement in technology 

What is a gigabit connection?

A full fibre broadband network takes your internet connection to an entirely new level. 

One gigabit equals 1,000 megabits (Mbps). It can deliver speeds up to 40 times faster than the typical home connection, allowing users to optimise their home internet speed and internet use across all devices. 

With that speed, you can download a full HD movie in just a few minutes, update your smartphone’s operating system in seconds and join videoconferences with ultra-high-definition video, to name a few.
