Giga Voucher


Do you meet this criteria and would you like to nominate IC as your supplier and register your company for the voucher?
Yes No


If you do not meet the criteria for a voucher you can still register but there would be installation costs applicable and these would be confirmed at the survey stage but would typically be expected to be between £2,000 & £2,500.





Next Stages (what can I expect)

  • There is a minimum limit and cut-off date, once the date is reached provided there is sufficient take up ICs contractors will conduct a full survey and costing for each business connection.
  • IC will submit the costs and businesses that are claiming the vouchers for sign off against the Voucher Scheme.
  • On acceptance you will get and email from the DCMS confirming your acceptance and voucher allocation with a PIN (please keep this very safe).
  • You will then get the official order from IC for the service required which you electronically sign and enter your payment details to setup the account.
  • IC then have a maximum of 12 months to install the service (although this should be within 6 but there is grace for unexpected issues like blockages and roadworks).
  • Once your service goes live you then enter your PIN on the DCMS website and your install fees are then paid to IC up to the agreed voucher limit.
