Other options for properties not included in the programme
The County Council is continuing to work towards a county with 100% fibre coverage. Thanks to the work of the Better Broadband for Nottinghamshire programme, superfast broadband is available to 97.68% of homes and businesses in Nottinghamshire.
For those properties which are not due to receive upgrades as per the commercial plans of infrastructure providers or via the work of the programme, there are other options to consider.
Better Broadband Voucher Scheme
If you currently experience broadband speeds of less than 2 Megabits per second (Mbps), the Better Broadband Voucher scheme may be able to help you access a basic broadband service that will offer download speeds of at least 10 Mbps. The voucher scheme helps with the initial set-up costs of a broadband service from a range of government approved satellite and wireless providers.
Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme
Since March 2018, the government has been running their gigabit broadband voucher scheme, which enables businesses and residents to apply to the scheme in order to subsidise the cost of a full-fibre connection, either individually or part of a group project.

Openreach will develop a modelled solution for the area which brings together funding from local authorities, government vouchers and their own contributions in line with their commercial model.
