Better Broadband Scheme


The Better Broadband Scheme has been developed by I Need Broadband to provide access to broadband for homes and businesses that are unable to access a broadband service with a download speed of at least 2 Mb per second and who will not benefit from the superfast broadband roll out.

If you currently experience poor broadband speeds, this scheme will provide you with access to a basic broadband service that will offer speeds of at least 10 Mb per second.

You can check your current broadband download speed over the BT Openreach network using the ADSL checker at You can check whether superfast broadband is available at your address using the BDUK superfast broadband checker at

How the Better Broadband Scheme Works

I Need Broadband work closely with your community, help us establish the number of homes and business without access to basic (10mbps) or superfast broadband services. I  Need Broadband can help bring extra revenue and funds to churches and homes by renting rooftop space to us, to host one of our many wireless broadband transmitters. If you would like to host a transmitter for us then let us know on your application.

The Better Broadband Scheme will ensure that no household or business will need to pay more than £199 install fee to access a our basic broadband service over a 12 month period.

Lets hit the target!

1. To active an area we will need a minimum of  10 homes/businesses in a area to show there interest with at least 5 homes or businesses signed up before we commit to a go live date.

2.There no alternative superfast broadband services available to you, which would provide a download speed of at least 10Mb per second.

3. There are no plans to provide superfast broadband to your location within 6 months of your application.

If your local authority believe a household or business is likely to be able to access superfast broadband within 12 months we will may not continue to look at an area anyfurther.
