4) £400 is offered where the applicant subscribes to less than 30 mb download speeds
5) £800 is offered where the applicant subscribes to more than 30 mb download speeds *
6) The grant can only cover the cost of the necessary hardware and installation, it does not cover the monthly subscription fee

* At present ALL the satellite ISP's have advised that while their equipment will achieve up to 30 mb this cannot be sustained and therefore for the moment will not qualify for the 800 grant scheme which requires a minimum of 30mb to qualify. 

However depending upon location we may be able to offer speeds in excess of 30 mb on a wireless connection. Please call 01745 816611 for further details.
