The Government has committed to giving access to 2Mbps (megabits per second) download speed (a basic broadband service) to every premises in the UK. As part of this commitment Connecting South Gloucestershire in conjunction with Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK), is making available the option of a subsidised broadband installation for eligible premises.
The Better Broadband Subsidy Scheme (BBSS) provides support towards the cost of the installation of a broadband connection so that a basic broadband service can be purchased for a first year cost of no more than £400. The scheme can also be used to access more expensive packages with higher speeds and/or greater monthly data allowances.
You will only be eligible if your premises has access to download speeds of less than 2Mbps (megabits per second).
Before applying, please read the Scheme Guide and Frequently Asked Questions:

- Better Broadband Subsidy Scheme FAQs
- guidance for communities on aggregating subsidy code under BBSS
If you think you are eligible, you can apply for a Subsidy Code, which will enable you to order a subsidised broadband connection from any of the service providers that are part of the scheme.
