Around 5% of the UK isn't covered by existing fibre broadband roll out plans, and that's where BT comes in. We're committed to working with hard-to-reach communities to find a fibre solution, and this initiative is designed to enable this. Delivering fibre to the hardest to reach communities is a huge challenge. But our strong ambition is to never say no and work with the community to find a suitable and affordable solution to bring fibre to an area. BT have teamed up with Spacehive to provide a streamlined way for communities to secure the funding they need to get fibre broadband in their area. Once communities know how much it will cost to install fibre they can use the platform to collect pledges of funding they need in one place. Communities can also use the platform to secure vouchers from the Government towards the cost and, in areas where there is a local school, they may be eligible for a grant from BT too. Spacehive's community support team are on hand to help.
