Funding Available to Bring Fiber Broadband to Remote Communities with a School (UK)

British Telecom has made £2 million available to increase access to super-fast broadband in communities in the final 5% of the UK not covered by fibre broadband rollout plans.

The Community Fibre Partnerships grants will cover up to 75% of the cost of the new fibre infrastructure, up to £30,000, so long as that new infrastructure serves the local Ofsted registered (or equivalent) school or learning establishment. The grant is available to UK communities where their proposal for a new co-funded fibre infrastructure serves a school that doesn’t have access to superfast fibre broadband (typically <24Mbps). Grants will be made on a ‘first come, first served’ basis until the funding is exhausted.

Recent beneficiaries include:

Dunedin secondary school in Edinburgh a small secondary school, attended by pupils who have not coped with mainstream schooling.
