Get superfast connectivity for your business
A super-fast internet connection makes your organisation more efficient, cheaper to run, and easier to develop.
The Scheme can help fund a connection for small and medium-sized businesses, charities, social enterprises, other not-for-profit organisations and home workers.
The Voucher Scheme covers the following cities.
Aberdeen, Belfast, Birmingham, Bradford, Brighton and Hove, Bristol, Cambridge, Cardiff, Coventry, Derby, Derry/Londonderry, Edinburgh, Leeds, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Newport, Oxford, Perth, Portsmouth, Salford, York.
You can get up to £3,000 to cover connection costs. It’s a grant not a loan, so you don’t have to pay it back. You just pay VAT, anything over £3,000, and the monthly subscription cost.
Individual or shared application?
The scheme is connectivity technology allowing speeds of between 30Mbps up to 1Gbps. A grant can be for an individual organisation, or several organisations can apply as a group through a landlord or agent with their permission. If you currently have business grade connectivity of 20Mbps you would have to double this to at least 40Mbps making a step change in your connectivity.
