Aspire is an approved supplier of the government Gigabit Voucher Scheme. Get up to £3,500 for businesses to help cover the costs of installing superfast broadband in rural areas.
As part of the Project Gigabit programme (2021), the government is working with approved connectivity suppliers to ensure businesses in some of the hardest-to-reach places in the UK are eligible for funding towards the cost of installing gigabit-capable connections to their premises.
A Gigabit-capable connection is a robust, reliable, future-proof and ultrafast internet connection. The Government is providing up to £210m worth of voucher funding as immediate help for people experiencing slow broadband speeds in rural areas.
