I am receiving a speed above 15Mbps via a 4G/satellite service. I signed up for this service as an interim solution while I wait for fibre to arrive. Am I being considered for Gainshare?
Yes. 4G and satellite technologies are not recognised NGA compliant solutions. Premises will be assessed for Gainshare funds based on the speeds they receive over NGA compliant networks. NGA technologies are defined by European Union regulation as “wired access networks which consist wholly or in part of optical elements and which are capable of delivering broadband access services with enhanced characteristics (such as higher throughput) as compared to those provided over already existing copper networks”.
