Government Broadband Subsidy Schemes - grants to help you get faster broadband
Get set up and running on fast 4G broadband completely free of charge!
If you have poor broadband in your home or business anywhere in the entire UK, then there are Government broadband subsidy schemes in place, right now offering grants specifically geared towards getting you access to much faster broadband. And if you're eligible, then all equipment, installation and set-up will be completely free of charge!
Please note that, regarding the three schemes linked to above, the BDUK Better Broadband Subsidy Scheme in its current form is set to run until the end of 2018. It will then be paused for a month or so before being extended, so to avoid any delays, anyone wishing to apply should get their application in before December 31st.
To go directly to the scheme that applies to you, click on the relevant image link above.

The UK and Welsh governments know how important it is for everyone to have good broadband. This is why they are committed to ensuring that every single home and business across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales has access to a broadband service running at a speed of at least 2 Mbps.
To make sure this happens, three geographically separate Government broadband subsidy schemes that cover the entire UK between them are up and running. So, if you're frustrated by slow broadband speeds of less than this, you should qualify for a grant-subsidised 4G broadband connection, providing you with far faster broadband! And if you do, then the total costs of getting you set up and running will be fully covered, saving you £380!
And there's no need to wait - once you've got your grant, we can get you set up and running on much faster 4G broadband almost immediately!
There are three Government broadband grant schemes in place covering England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. We at 4G Internet are proud to have been appointed as a fully approved supplier to all three schemes.
- The BDUK Better Broadband Scheme covers the entire UK with the exception of Wales and Devon & Somerset.
- The Welsh Assembly's Access Broadband Cymru Scheme covers the whole of Wales.
- The Connecting Devon & Somerset Better Broadband Scheme covers the Devon & Somerset region.
If you are eligible for a grant under whichever of the three schemes applies to your property's location, the funding provided will fully cover the entire costs of getting set up with our 4G broadband service - that includes all equipment, professional installation and setting up of your 4G broadband account. So with a Government broadband grant, getting your home or business up and running on fast 4G broadband will be completely free of charge!

Yes, with us there is. We at 4G Internet undertake to demonstrate an absolute minimum download speed of at least 10 Mbps (though we would confidently expect to achieve far greater speeds in almost every case) immediately following installation of your equipment under any Government Better Broadband Subsidy Scheme currently in place - and we will show you that we have achieved at least this.
And if we don't? We'll remove all equipment, walk away with absolutely no ongoing obligation to yourself and you may then freely re-utilise your subsidy with any other approved supplier.
We call this our no strings attached Performance Promise and you can read more about it by clicking here.
Of course, the vast majority of our 4G broadband installations far exceed that minimum 10 Mbps level. The average speeds that we deliver across the UK have been independently audited and verified as being in excess of 20 Mbps, as you can see if you click here - and we of course have numerous customers who enjoy much faster speeds than that. You might want to see what some of the delighted users of our 4G broadband service have said - entirely in their own words - by clicking here.
Of course! Just call us on 03333 447700 and we'll be happy to talk things through with you, let you know what your options are, find out for you if you're liable to be eligible for a subsidy and how to go about applying for one.
We have been a fully approved nationwide supplier from the very start of all Better Broadband Government grant schemes that are in place, so we already have long experience of exactly how things work. So we'll be able to point you in the right direction - just give us a call!
Government broadband grants are available to any home or business across the entire UK that cannot currently access a broadband service above 2 Mbps. You can perform an initial check for yourself as to what broadband speeds are available from traditional suppliers at your location by visiting the UK government's Superfast Broadband Availability Checker here.
As stated above, there are three different Government broadband grant schemes in place. Which one applies to you depends on where you live.
The initial qualification of your application is handled by the regional or local authority that is tasked with overseeing broadband connectivity in your area.
The simplest way to find out how and where to apply is via the BDUK Better Broadband Scheme Location Checker. Just enter your postcode there and you'll be given information on which regional or local body is administering the scheme that covers your specific property and a link to where you can apply.
Pretty much no matter where your property is, if you can't currently get a broadband service running at a minimum speed of 2 Mbps, then a 4G connection should be an ideal solution for you - and quite possibly the best broadband solution available. Over 99% of all UK homes and businesses are already covered by 4G and our service can be installed almost immediately - even in the most rural areas - so there's just no need to wait to get up and running with a fast, robust and cost-effective broadband service.
There are certain unique aspects about any broadband service delivered over 4G that it's worth you being aware of. So why not take a look at our "Using 4G home or office broadband" page - this will give you some really useful information on the minor differences you can expect from a broadband service provided over 4G.
