Qualify for a grant of up to £2,500 towards an ultra-fast, Gigabit Internet Connection

The Government is committed to a full fibre Britain and they want to help your business keep up.  

 

Britain’s average internet speed ranks 31st in the world, falling behind most of Europe, Thailand and New Zealand. The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport have launched their £67m Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme in response to these findings.

This scheme allows small businesses to claim up to £2,500 towards the installation of gigabit-capable internet connections, as part of a £200 million ‘full fibre’ investment plan.

 

The benefits of claiming a voucher

 

Businesses should be thinking seriously about taking advantage of this offer and here’s why…

 

Keep up to speed

Over 95% of the UK now has coverage for superfast broadband with speeds of 24 megabits per second or higher. However, most connections still depend on copper telephone wires, which are limited in the speeds they can support.

If your business depends on fast and reliable broadband, capable of delivering gigabit speeds, a full fibre connection is required.

Taking this leap forward in connection speeds will massively benefit you and your business in the future.

 
Save thousands of pounds 

Businesses can claim up to £2,500 towards infrastructure costs of a gigabit-capable connection, proving certain criteria are met.

 

Increase productivity

Under the previous broadband voucher scheme, 50,000 businesses increased their internet connections and of these, 86% reported the internet upgrade had increased the productivity of their employees.

Why are more and more businesses turning to leased lines?

Why are more and more businesses turning to leased lines?

Businesses are benefiting from faster, more reliable internet connections thanks to dedicated leased lines.

 

Data demands are growing rapidly and businesses are finding they require a faster, more secure connection to keep up with the competition and to provide the service their customers expect.

A dedicated leased line is a fibre optic cable that runs from your business directly to the exchange. The cable can deliver ultra-fast speeds that no other service can beat.

A third of manufacturers have invested in a dedicated leased line connection and other companies are following suit. ( According to EEF, May 2016 )

 

The benefits of switching to a leased line

 

Businesses can benefit from switching from broadband to a dedicated leased line in many ways: 

Consistency and scalability  

With the rise of technology, businesses now rely on a consistent and high-speed internet connection. SME’s are expected to respond to customers in an instant, to store and transfer large amounts of data daily and to work without disruption.

A dedicated leased line ensures companies no longer have to share their connectivity with others which can often slow the connection down, especially at busy times. Instead, you’ll receive a consistent, committed bandwidth at all times meaning you can always provide and achieve what you promise to your customers.

The use of a leased line also means you can quickly and easily scale your connectivity up or down, so you always pay for the connectivity that matches the exact demands of your business. 

Cost-saving

With scalability, also comes cost-saving. The benefit of being able to scale your connectivity to adapt to your changing requirements means you can achieve the most cost-effective connectivity for your business, at all times.

The cost of leased lines has dropped and they are becoming a much more cost-effective option for many businesses. 

Satisfied customers 

We all know that customers come first, which is why you should consider customer satisfaction when making business decisions. An excellent internet connection ensures you can deliver promises to customers without the risk of delays and downtime and also allows you to upload and download large data files in a flash.

Leased lines support VPN and remote access so your customer data can be kept safe and secure and your staff can access it from anywhere. Allowing staff to work from anywhere can also result in attracting the best talent which in turn results in a great service and happy customers.

62% of firms are planning to invest more in internet connected capital equipment in the next five years ( According to EEF, May 2016 ) so it’s imperative businesses keep up with the curve.
