Residents may also benefit from the scheme but only as part of a pre-registered project. This is a shared solution in which the majority of the value of vouchers is expected to go to SMEs.</p><p>The scheme is supplier-led which means that beneficiaries should approach a registered supplier in order to utilise the scheme. Supplier registration is open, so if a business or resident wishes to take advantage of the scheme and their chosen supplier is not currently taking part then they should be encouraged to do so.</p><p> </p><p>The full details of the scheme criteria are listed on our website at https://gigabitvoucher.culture.gov.uk.</p> more like this
