gigabit broadband schemeAll businesses and organisations have sadly been affected by COVID-19 and it’s brought into sharp relief the importance of fast, reliable fixed line broadband.  Be it employees working remotely from home, or rapid changes to how the business serves customers online, the speed and capacity of an organisation’s broadband makes a huge difference.

The Government’s Gigabit Voucher Scheme provides up to £2.5k for the connection costs to get gigabit broadband.  The scheme is open to SMEs, although that definition includes other organisations from the third sector, like charities.  Businesses simply contact a registered supplier on the scheme to begin the process.

Hurry!  Limited opportunity to get up to £2,500

£67m funding for this scheme was allocated by the UK Government, however, this is rapidly running out.  Businesses and organisations are urged to apply without delay to the scheme if they want to benefit from faster, more reliable gigabit broadband.  All the evidence shows, better broadband helps businesses to innovate, support new ways of working and develop their online services.   With the massive demands on the public purse, we do not know if this scheme will be available to Bristol businesses for much longer – so don’t delay, act today!

The telecoms sector is designated as an essential service is working through the Corona virus pandemic to provide  customers with the vital broadband connected they need at this time
