CFP eligibility check page


[link to this post]
 
Can someone remind me of the page where you can check you postcode's eligibility for Community Fibre Partnership 'vouchers'. Bonus points for suggesting the 'new' scheme page. Ta!

The new voucher scheme doesn't launch until the 8th April.

will also need to check via openreach checker to see if you are a in forthcoming rural build or in one of the exchanges recently announced by Openreach - you can only use CFP where you are not in a programme that in the near to middle future

I thought this too but a village I know has just raised nearly £400k of vouchers for a CFP and if you dig they were already in scope for fttp via a commercial Openreach rollout.

Maybe so but there's a page - somewhere...

My exchange is Fibre First. Openreach are telling me to organise a CFP and claim vouchers. I know I can't do that because I'm in an urban area but I'd like to prove it.

Yah - Pheasant is right it's this link:https://www.openreach.com/fibre-broadband/community-fibre-partnerships

This is the general scheme from Openreach which then depending on your area will mean you may be eligble for voucher funding from the new DCMS scheme or will have to raise money within the community.

Note that the new scheme will only work in areas classified by OFCOM and DCMS as Region 3 and above.

No quite. All I can do there is find out I have FTTC. I can't follow any links to tell me whether or not I can apply for a voucher. I've defiantly checked before (I can't). So maybe the page is down until the new scheme come into place.

So to be clear, its a page which checks your postcode and tells you if you're in an OFCOM Region where you can apply for a voucher.

Maybe I'll look again next week but I'd hoped to reply this.

Linky

Edit: Above is the Government site that would previously say if you was eligible for a Gigabit Voucher.
