Broadband voucher scheme

The Connection Voucher Scheme has closed

The funds available to the scheme have been fully allocated and we can't accept new applications.

More than 55,000 small and medium businesses (SMEs), employing up to one million people across the UK, have taken advantage of a Government scheme to boost their broadband connectivity. 1,185 small businesses in the Greater Brighton area have taken up the offer, many of which are seeing significant boosts to their business as a result of improved broadband speeds.

If you have already applied for a Connection Voucher

Once your new connection is in place, you will need to pay any costs on the supplier’s invoice that are not covered by the voucher (for example VAT or costs above the voucher value). Then submit the supplier's invoice to the council along with the CVS claim form (Word 47KB) to claim the voucher value.
