Broadband voucher scheme closes 30 November

The Parish Council wish to remind parishioners to check their eligibility for a broadband voucher before the scheme closes.

Connecting Devon and Somerset Broadband Voucher Scheme

 The CDS Broadband Voucher Scheme provides anyone in the connecting Devon & Somerset programme area with a broadband speed of less than 2 Mbps with a voucher for £500 towards the cost of a new broadband connection.

 The CDS voucher scheme will close on 30th November to new applications. This will allow suppliers to complete installations and return invoices to CDS by the end of the financial year in March 2017.

 Residents and businesses within the programme area who have slower speeds can apply through the Connecting Devon and Somerset website. Those with speeds that are confirmed as below the 2Mbps threshold and have no access to faster networks will be issued with a voucher. If residents do not have sufficient internet access to apply online, paper copies of the application form can be sent. Alternatively, arrangements can be made to take applications over the phone.”
