Free Government Funding Leaflet

Powburn residents should have received a leaflet through their door on 25 February 2021 with information about the Government backed scheme. As a reminder, the necessary information is reproduced below.


You and your community could benefit from faster internet. Act NOW so that you don’t miss out. The Rural Gigabit Voucher Scheme has been set up to fund fibre installations to improve the broadband network to every eligible business and residential property in your local area. The vouchers can be ‘pooled’ to make the whole project more viable*.

Alncom are one of the few Government registered suppliers – we are local, we don’t need you to form a legal entity and we will get on with the build quickly and without fuss. We have already built fibre networks and connected hundreds of people in the North East & Borders with high speed broadband. This means that they can now access all internet services, enjoy online gaming, conduct video calls around the world, watch ‘buffering free’ HD TV and work efficiently from home – all at the same time!

The more people that get involved – the more chance we have of making it a reality! Please register your interest at:

* The voucher value can vary based on Local Authority additional contributions, but start at up to £1500 for homes and £3500 for businesses.

What you should do

  1. Go to and register your interest
  2. Encourage your friends and neighbours to do the same
  3. When we have enough interest, we can get started
  4. We connect you to our full fibre network and you enjoy Ultrafast Broadband
