As part of this commitment OnLincolnshire and Nottinghamshire County Council in conjunction with Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) have created a subsidised broadband scheme working with a number of different providers and technologies.

We have recently completed an agreement with Vonage, one of the largest VOIP providers in Europe. Vonage are now offering a £50 (inc VAT) cashback for anyone who takes a Vonage service along with a Newark Wireless broadband subscription.
Vonage provide telephone lines which do not require a traditional land line, they instead use your internet connection. They work in exactly the same way as your traditional BT handset, and they can even transfer your existing number to your new line.
Vonage line rental starts at only £8/month (inc VAT) which is much cheaper than the typical line rental with the major UK providers, additionally they have no minimum contract period. The only requirement to qualify for “The Vonage Deal” is that you must keep the Vonage service for at least 6months.
If you would like to take a Vonage line please sign up for the service with this link. If you wish to discuss your options give us a call.
To ensure we issue your payment please don’t forget to let us know by email that you have taken “The Vonage Deal”.
All the equipment used to provide broadband on our Network is running a backup power supply. However, if a power cut strikes, this can still leave your house without power. In this scenario an uninterruptable power supply can provide a limited amount of battery backup and keep vital services (such as Vonage telephone) running during the power outage.
When installed with broadband and telephone
