Act now on broadband grants

September 15th, 2015  |  Published in Uncategorized

Time is now running out for firms that want to take advantage of the Government’s Broadband Connection voucher scheme as it is being offered on a first come first served basis. There has been “a huge surge in demand” for the scheme in recent months. Connection Vouchers will be made available on a first come, first served basis until 31 March 2016.

More than 40,000 UK SMEs in 50 cities across the UK have had grants approved and are now benefitting from superfast broadband.

  • Broadband Connection Vouchers are available to Small or Medium Enterprises (SMEs) if:
    Your business is within an eligible area one of the 50 cities taking part in the scheme. Check your postcode to find out if you’re eligible
    You are a SME, registered charity, social enterprise or sole trader
    Installation of your new broadband connection will cost over £100
    The connection is for your business premises. You can apply for a connection at home if this is your main work base, but this does not apply if you work from home occasionally
    You are willing to sign up to a minimum 6 month contract with your broadband supplier
    The broadband service you select delivers a speed or performance improvement on your current connection. There are some detailed requirements on speed that you should check before applying
    You have not received more than €200,000 in grants in the last 3 years
