The Universal Service Obligation (USO) for broadband is a UK-wide measure intended as a “safety net” to deliver broadband to those premises that do not have access to a decent and affordable connection. The Government have defined a decent connection as one that can deliver 10Mbps download speed and 1Mbps upload speed. Ofcom has defined an affordable connection as one that costs less than £45 per month.
You may be eligible to request a connection under the Broadband Universal Service Obligation from a provider designated by Ofcom. In the first instance, you can approach the Broadband Universal Service Providers to check their eligibility and apply. For UK premises please visit: https://www.bt.com/USO
