Full Fibre Broadband
Now’s the time for ultrafast full fibre optic broadband
If you live in Dorset, Wiltshire, Somerset or Hampshire and would like 1000Mb/s gigabit-capable full fibre internet for your home or business, you could be in luck!
Installation costs of full fibre have been prohibitive for you in the past, but fear not, the government has schemes in place to help you achieve ultrafast broadband in the most rural of locations.
The Gigabit Voucher Scheme & the Rural Gigabit Connectivity scheme can both help offset the installation cost of full fibre internet connections straight into your home or business.
We are a registered government supplier which means we can help you get fibre to your property much quicker than any of the national broadband providers. We don’t use the Openreach network, when we say fibre, we mean full fibre optic cables all the way
To find out if you are eligible, you simply need to register your interest using the forms on this page and we’ll perform some checks and let you know the options you have available.

How we install our full fibre optic broadband
The Gigabit Voucher Explained
The gigabit voucher was launched in March 2018 as a way to provide gigabit capable full fibre optic broadband to SMEs and surrounding residential properties. Businesses are able to claim up to £2500 and residents up to £500 and this can be used as part of a scheme which enables us to roll out our full fibre broadband to whole communities. And, because of the way we install our fibre, we can reach some of the most rural parts of Dorset, Somerset, Wiltshire and even Hampshire!
The Rural Gigabit Connectivity Programme
Launched in May 2019, the Government has pledged £200m to fund full fibre broadband rollout in hard to reach areas nationally. This means as a business you’re able to claim up to £3500 and as a resident, you can claim up to £1500. This programme will mean Wessex Internet will be able to provide more of you an ultrafast future proof broadband connection than ever before.
Which scheme is for me then?
You don’t have to worry about this. Simply register as a business if you are one, or a resident using the forms on this page – we’ll then assess your registration and let you know the best options so that we can get you connected as quickly as possible!
