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.
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.
