I have been told I have a service under the Phase 1 contract with BT, but I still cannot access 30Mbps. Will I qualify for investment under Gainshare?

Having been included in the Phase 1 rollout will not exclude a premise from benefitting from Gainshare. Where the download speed remains below 30Mbps and where there are no credible and declared commercial plans. CDS are targeting areas below 15 Mbps in areas of significant deprivation. Until the Gainshare consultation process is complete, and CDS and BT have agreed the final solution, CDS cannot confirm the exact communities that will benefit from 30 Mbps connectivity. There may be an element where areas with higher current speeds but below 30 Mbps benefit due to the technical design of the solution.

Whilst measures to contain COVID-19 continue to evolve, CDS will attempt to maintain a Business As Usual approach, though there may be some unavoidable impact on our ability to respond to queries.
