Subsidise your install costs

The UK government has created the Better Broadband Scheme (often referred to as Connection Vouchers) to ensure that every household and business in the UK can access an affordable ‘basic’ broadband service.

If you currently get less than 2mbs download speed and there are no viable providers offering a better service in your area you may qualify for a connection voucher that could reduce your install cost.

If you think you may qualify and would like to know more, please email as at hello@sugarnet.co.uk or call us on 0330 113 1949 and we will be happy to help.  Alternatively, follow the steps below to check for your self and claim your voucher code.
