National Satellite Broadband Scheme

The UK Government has set a target for all homes and businesses to have access to a standard broadband service of at least 2Mbps. As part of this commitment, Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) has developed a programme offering subsidised satellite broadband installation to eligible properties in Scotland.

The national scheme will contribute towards the equipment and installation costs of a satellite broadband connection. You will be able to choose from a range of services including options and provide speeds significantly greater than 2Mbps. You can find more information and apply online on the Digital Scotland website.
