R100 – The Scottish Broadband Voucher Scheme (SBVS) 

To find out if you are eligible for a voucher, enter your details into the online checker. The online checker will confirm for you:

  • whether or not you already have the ability to order a superfast service;
  • whether or not you will receive a connection through the R100 contracts and, if so, when;
  • whether or not you will receive a connection through the R100 contracts and, if so, when;
  • whether or not you are eligible for a voucher through the SBVS and, if so, which voucher they will be eligible for

The voucher scheme will offer two distinct levels of subsidy:

  • A voucher worth up to £5,000 to help deliver a permanent broadband connection to those properties for which there is no roll-out of superfast broadband planned
  • A voucher worth up to £400 to help deliver an interim connection to those properties for which there is the roll-out of superfast broadband planned, but not until after the end of 2021. Properties in more difficult-to-reach locations may be eligible for an additional subsidy of £250

In some cases, rural addresses may be eligible to combine Scottish Government funding of up to £5,000 with funding from the UK Government’s Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme (GBVS) which provides £1,500 for rural homes and £3,500 for rural businesses. If this is the case, chosen suppliers take this into account automatically and manage this on your behalf.
