Barrow (Charlton Musgrove) Community Scheme

Scheme Information

Wessex Internet is excited to announce that we are determining interest for a pure fibre community scheme in Barrow.

We are looking to fund this community scheme using the Gigabit Voucher and we have had our plans for this area approved by the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).

This scheme will allow small/medium enterprises (SME), businesses and residents to benefit from the Gigabit Voucher scheme subject to us receiving enough SME vouchers in this area.

Registration is open for anyone who is interested and please keep checking back for updates on this scheme.

Latest Update


Good news, we have now secured the funding for the Barrow/Charlton Musgrove scheme to progress. This means we are able to offer residential vouchers at £500 (ex VAT) each and will be looking to issue order forms to those who have registered as a resident over the next week.


We are looking to run a fibre community scheme for Barrow and are working with your community champions to get enough funding to be able to offer a £500 (ex VAT) residential voucher to those who cannot claim a business grant.

We need 17/18 business grants in order to offer the subsidised installation to residential customers, so if you know anyone in the area who can claim a business Gigabit Voucher, then please ask them to get in touch!
