Scottish Broadband Voucher Scheme
Fibrecast is a registered supplier with the Scottish Broadband Voucher Scheme (SBVS) which is providing eligible homes and businesses funding of up to £5000 to receive a broadband connection providing speeds of at least 30 Mbps.
You can check the eligibility of your home or business at https://www.scotlandsuperfast.com/
Please note that we are receiving a high volume of enquiries in relation to the SBVS and we are currently working to a 10 working day response time. Please do not call as our telephone operatives will be unable to assist as there is a specific team is responsible for dealing with SBVS enquiries. Click Here to contact us.
Single Residential Dwellings or Business Premise:
If you are eligible for a voucher through the SBVS scheme please review our Wireless Coverage Map in the first instance to determine whether you live within an area that our network can already provide service to. If you do, then we will undertake a survey to determine whether our network can definitely provide service to your home or business.
If you live outwith our existing coverage area then unfortunately it is unlikely we will be able to provide a connection in the imminent future as we will need to upgrade and extend our network to reach new areas, and this will only happen in areas where there sufficient demand.
In some cases new areas will require new fibre circuits to be installed to provide backhaul connectivity to our masts which can take around 6 months to install.
Projects – Multiple Residential Dwellings or Business Parks etc.
The Scottish Broadband Voucher Scheme (SBVS) works best for areas that have a large aggregation of eligible properties within a reasonably small area, such as housing estates and business parks.
Where possible we are aiming to deploy Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) for projects with a minimum of 30-40 homes or businesses (the exact quantity of homes/businesses required will vary depending on the location due to costs).
For projects where the homes or businesses are dispersed geographically then Wireless Broadband will likely be the solution. This will likely involve the installation of a new fibre circuit for a new mast to serve a location which can take around 6 months to install.
Please contact us to discuss any potential projects that you may have, we’d be happy to provide advice in the first instance and if we believe we can assist we will look to proceed to deploying a solution.
