Broadband Connection Vouchers
You can obtain a grant of up to £3,000 to upgrade your business to faster, better broadband through the Broadband Connection Vouchers scheme.
The scheme has been launched in 22 cities across the UK. It is administered by the cities through over 430 registered suppliers.
It provides grants of up to £3,000 to cover the capital and equipment costs of upgrading your broadband connection. You pay the VAT charged and the monthly line rental to your service provider. The monthly costs vary by provider and package, but a quarter of businesses pay £40 per month or less.
Benefits to your business as a result of faster, better broadband include:
- Growing and accessing new markets through better communication with customers and suppliers
- Increasing security through fast secure back-up of data
- Increasing productivity and improving customer service through faster upload and download speeds
Upgrading your broadband will also help to future-proof your business for the digital challenges of tomorrow.
The scheme remains open for applications until 31 March 2015. To apply for a grant, click here.
