40,000 UK businesses receive better broadband

More than 40,000 businesses across the UK have now benefitted from the Government’s super connected broadband connection voucher scheme, latest figures published today show. The scheme, which helps SMEs get connected to superfast broadband has seen a huge surge in demand in recent months, but time is running out for businesses to take advantage of the initiative.

The government scheme allows businesses to apply for grants of up to £3,000 each to cover the costs of installing faster and better broadband. So far, more than 40,000 businesses across the UK have had grants approved. The scheme has helped a huge variety of businesses to date, including architects, estate agents, mechanics, events coordinators cafes, graphic designers and caterers.

Broadband Connection Vouchers are now available for the Portsmouth area and 21 other SuperConnected Cities across the UK. Each local scheme has been designed to best meet local needs and to help local businesses to grow and develop.

You can apply if you are a small business and you are located in the Portsmouth area. The Connection Voucher will pay towards the fixed cost of getting you connected.
