If your city isn’t offering vouchers yet, use our Register your Interest form to let us know that you are. Where does it say if outside the area you can still use the money?

From what I can see it says

On the form you will be given a choice of the 22 cities participating – please note that if your city is not listed, there are no plans for Connection Vouchers to be rolled out in your area at the current time.

Bit random in the city selection? not available in Leicestershire even though it's bigger than Derby and a few others on there. We've just moved into a large business center and having to use ADSL as the center doesn't want to pay BT £22k for the FTTC install.

Free microwave, now that is a good runners up prize.

I doubt they do it based on size but on budget for the area.
