Openreach is asking residents and businesses in Tregynon, Llanbrynmair and Kerry to apply for UK Government Gigabit Vouchers to help fund the extension of its full fibre network.
Residents in the three communities will not need to pay for the service or infrastructure but they will have to commit to ordering a full fibre service from a provider of their choice for at least 12 months once the network is live.
Cllr Jake Berriman, Powys County Council's Cabinet Member for a Connected Powys, said: "This is a great opportunity for homes and businesses in these three communities to get access to a faster full fibre network which is often only available in more urban areas.
"As many as 1,148 properties in Tregynon, Llanbrynmair and Kerry are eligible, but Openreach will only be able to connect them if enough people sign up and pledge their vouchers to the scheme."
