You can save up to £3,000 off the installation costs of a Gigabit Fibre Connection.

We are pleased to announce that FluidOne has been approved as an official supplier on the Governments Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme. This means that you can significant reduce your investment on getting a Gigabit capable connection such an Ethernet Leased Line.

What is it?

Full fibre broadband connections offer the fastest and most reliable speeds available, and the government is committed to a vision of a full fibre Britain. As part of this commitment in March 2018, the department for digital, culture, media & sport announced a £67m Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme.

Gigabit vouchers can be used by small businesses and the local communities surrounding them to contribute to the installation cost of a gigabit capable connection. Businesses can claim up to £3,000 against the cost of connection either individually or as part of a group project.
