Openreach fibre broadband funded by the Government Rural Gigabit Voucher Scheme

The Government’s Rural Gigabit Voucher Scheme is an initiative to help homes and businesses in rural areas install a gigabit-capable, full fibre connection to their premises when part of a group scheme. Rural premises with broadband speeds of less than 100 Megabits per second (Mbps) can apply for vouchers worth up to £3,500 for each SME, and up to £1,500 per residential premise to support the cost of installing new gigabit-capable connections.

Openreach have put forward the Ickleton project but not all emails were validated and Openreach need to obtain a 100% response if possible, not only to raise as much voucher value as possible but also to show that the Parish is enthusiastic about having full fibre installed. The Parish Council would encourage all Parishioners to validate the emails as a matter of urgency so the project is successful.
