£3000 Connection Voucher Scheme extended until 2016!
Small to Medium businesses now have more opportunity to apply for grants of up to £3000 for the installation of superfast connectivity.
The scheme is available across ‘superconnected’ cities in the UK and has now extended into new areas.
On 3 December, the Chancellor announced that the Government will make up to £40m available from April 2015 to March 2016 to support more cities who want to administer The Broadband Connection Voucher Scheme.
How does it work?
Grants of up to £3,000 (minimum Grant is £250.00) are available 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.
