Surely that is £1500 per residential property in vouchers and top ups?

For residential property - £1500 for rural gigabit voucher and £1000 for KCC grant which equals £2500 per property

For a business Property - £2500 for gigabit voucher and £1000 from KCC grant which equals £3500 per property

You can mix and match gigabit vouchers with rural gigabit vouchers

I hope so. Of the seven properties on the estate, five are owner-occupied and two are rented. If the final estimate comes in at under £2k per property by the time grants and vouchers are taken in to account I'm confident we'll get buy-in from those who own their properties. The renters I hope will buy in too because when I first talked about the CFP I made it clear there would be costs involved and they still said they were interested.

We got confirmation today that we do indeed qualify for the rural gigabit scheme plus the Kent County Council top-ups. The KCC scheme is only being launched on Tuesday (10th Sep) so hopefully no issues with timescales.

The reason I asked about the KCC scheme is because this process could take 18 months before you get FTTP and the gigabit vouchers have a time limit of 12 months for them to be used although they have now added a mechanism for the period to be refreshed after 12 months so wasn't sure if KCC grants have a time limit as well.

This is what the chap from KCC said

You donít need to make any additional applications, just use the Government RGC process and we will manage all the financial issues / audit and assurance behind the scenes. We have deliberately included our scheme in the RGC programme to reduce bureaucracy for people Ė so you only make one application and we hide all the wiring of our programme to avoid people getting confused by the issues.

Sounds straightforward enough!

Ah ok.

Don't forget that you still have to pay for the VAT element, regardless.

I think!

There are many differences between the rural gigabit voucher and the standard gigabit voucher.

For example you can use the rural gigabit voucher to pay VAT which is not the case for a standard gigabit voucher.
