Connecting your community using the Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme (GBVS)

The Government is providing voucher funding for people experiencing slow broadband speeds in rural and remote areas.

Vouchers worth up to Β£1,500 for residential homes and Β£3,500 for businesses help cover the cost of a registered service provider installing gigabit broadband to your door.

Working with local communities to maximise the benefit of governmant connectivity grants

WeFibre has been specifically designed to unlock all the benefits of the government's Rural Gigabit Connectivity programme, in turn ensuring they help local rural communities get future-ready with Hyperfast Broadband

We Plan

We aim to be the first FTTP network for residential and business premises in the towns where we build.

We Build

We use the existing ducts and poles when available and build our own infrastructure to cover 100% of the premises.

We Connect

When your premise is passed (live), you can order Internet services of 10,000-Mbps.
