Satellite Internet, UK partner of satellite broadband provider SES Techcom Services, has announced its participation in a new regional Broadband Voucher scheme. The Connecting Devon and Somerset (CDS) programme aims to help those with internet speeds of less than 2 Mbps get connected to faster broadband by offering a subsidy to help towards upfront costs. Eligible residents and businesses will be given a voucher code (up to GBP 500) which they can use with their choice of seven approved suppliers.
