Digital Household Grant

The Digital Household Grant will fund the installation of an interim broadband solution for those properties in South Herefordshire affected by the transition to the Government’s Project Gigabit scheme.

Who’s eligible?

The grant is available to properties in the south of Herefordshire that were planned to be reached by Gigaclear as part of the Fastershire programme which currently have less than 30Mbps broadband capable connection.

What does the grant fund?

Funded by Herefordshire Council, the grant will cover the installation of 4G connection using an external antenna fitted to the outside of the property. In areas where a 4G connection proven to be unavailable, then the grant will look to fund an effective satellite solution.

Whilst the installation cost will be funded by the grant the ongoing monthly subscription or service charges will be covered by the applicant (as with any of the Fastershire programme).

We cannot fund retrospectively for what you have decided to install yourself, and we will fund the supplier directly for the 4G solution once the below steps are complete.
