Small and medium sized businesses in Coventry & Warwickshire can benefit from grants worth up to £3,000 towards a new gigabit capable broadband connection.
Initially piloted in Coventry & Warwickshire the scheme run by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport has now gone national and local businesses are encouraged to make use of the funds while they last.
Businesses can access the scheme through a registered supplier. There is no application process to complete, if a registered supplier can provide a gigabit capable connection to a business premises they will offer the voucher as a discount towards the installation costs.
Businesses can boost their voucher value by joining together with other businesses and residential customers. Once there is a group of other users in an area the supplier may be able to pool the vouchers together to subsidise the cost of installing a connection.
