Aims of the voucher scheme

The UK now has 95% coverage for superfast broadband with speeds of 24 mbps or higher but most superfast connections still depend on copper telephone wires which are limited in the speeds they can provide. For the fastest and most reliable broadband, capable of delivering speeds of over one gigabit (one gigabit = 1,000 megabits), a full-fibre connection is required.

The Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme is part of the Local Full Fibre Networks programme which aims to increase full-fibre internet coverage across the UK.
