Getting a better broadband service

The Government is committed to providing every home and business in the UK with access to a basic broadband service so that browsing the web and keeping in touch with families and friends is easier. 

A subsidised broadband installation is now available if you cannot access an affordable broadband service with a speed of at least 2Mb per second.  

You can check whether superfast broadband is available to you using the GoSuperfast checker and what your current broadband speed is using the ADSL availability checker.  

If, after making these checks, you believe your speed is less than 2Mb per second and you have no other options available enter your postcode below to find out how to apply for help.  

Taking out a broadband service under this scheme will not prevent your premises from being considered for superfast broadband in the future.
