High Speed Fibre Broadband to your Home or Business

Compton Parish Council are coordinating efforts to bring high speed internet coverage to the villages of Compton and West Marden

and outlying houses through the government Community Gigabit Voucher Scheme.

A unique opportunity for all Compton residents to enjoy ultra-high-speed broadband – via the West Sussex Rural Gigabit Voucher Scheme

Your Parish Council has the opportunity to provide every household in Compton with ultra-high-speed fibre broadband. This will provide significantly increased broadband speeds as well as future proofing internet capability throughout the village and its environs.

We need to apply as a group via the Parish Council. By agreeing to join other participating households and businesses a £4,000 grant (funded jointly by the Gigabit scheme and WSCC) towards the cost of installing the ultra-high-speed fibre broadband will be granted to each participating business or household.

With sufficient support the cumulative grants could cover the entire installation costs associated with the scheme.

What is the scheme about?

The scheme enables local businesses, home workers and residential properties in eligible rural areas (of which Compton currently is one) to claim a voucher/grant funding towards the cost of a Gigabit capable installation.

This grant is available in this area to all those who apply as a group only until March 31st.

How does the scheme work?

There is a good deal more information about the scheme available to you if you visit the Gigabit Voucher website
