ISPA welcomes the roll out of the Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme (GBVS) at a national level, and is greatly encouraged by the Government’s commitment to encouraging ultrafast infrastructure deployment. ISPA members have been instrumental in the proliferation of fibre connections in the UK, and many have had success with existing voucher schemes in local areas.

Widening the scope of the scheme is a welcome step towards future-proofing the UK’s digital infrastructure and reaching the Government’s target of 10m premises with access to full fibre broadband by 2022.
