National Satellite Broadband Scheme
The UK Government has set a target for all homes and businesses to have access to a standard broadband service of at least 2Mbps. As part of this commitment, Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) has developed a programme offering subsidised satellite broadband installation to eligible properties in Scotland.
This national scheme will contribute towards the equipment and installation costs of a satellite broadband connection. You will be able to choose from a range of services including options that provide speeds significantly greater than 2Mbps. You can find more information and apply online on the Digital Scotland website.
Limited Offer on Satellite Broadband Monthly Subscription
Avonline is offering a funded voucher to Fife residents and businesses who experience broadband speeds of less than 2mbps.
The offer is part of the UK Government’s Better Broadband Scheme which sets out to provide subsidised broadband installation to homes and premises that are unable to access a broadband service with download speeds of at least 2Mbps and will not benefit from the current phase of the Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband roll out.
The limited time offer covers all upfront costs, including hardware, installation, and activation, as well as a reduced monthly service subscription starting at £19.99.
To find out if you are eligible, check that you are not already listed as benefiting from the roll out of superfast broadband, and use the BT checker to find out your current broadband speed.
