What are you doing about getting additional funding?

We are doing all that we can to bring in additional funding to take the network further. However, as this is not guaranteed and we don’t know what any future funding streams may cover, you may want to think about other ways to upgrade the broadband in your area.

For example, you could choose to pay Openreach or another major provider to upgrade the infrastructure in your area. If you decide to follow this route then you may want to take a look at the Community Fibre Partnerships website.

Of course, any community solution will need to be paid for! However, the Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme which can help with this.

Vouchers can be aggregated so that if, for example, a community wanted to upgrade its connectivity then the vouchers can be pooled together to form one project covering the entire area. This would ensure best value for all concerned and would reduce costs overall.
