Premier Choice Telecom has been confirmed as a supplier for the Government’s super connected cities broadband scheme. The scheme offers SMEs a voucher, which in turn can be used to upgrade their broadband for free. However, it’s important to act quickly as the scheme is set to expire in March 2016.
Internet speeds are continued problems for small and medium-sized enterprises. With super fast broadband there’s the opportunity to heighten efficiency, lower running costs and even encourage business growth.
Of course, the implementation costs can be a stumbling block for many SMEs. This is why the Connection Voucher Scheme was created, offering between £100 and £3,000 to companies wanting to upgrade their broadband.
Rather than a loan, this scheme provides grants to SMEs, whereby the voucher won’t need to be repaid.
The scheme isn’t available to everyone though and 22 cities have been handpicked as eligible for vouchers. These include: Aberdeen, Belfast, Birmingham, Brighton & Hove, Bristol, Cambridge, Cardiff, Coventry, Derby, Derry/Londonderry, Edinburgh, Leeds/Bradford, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Newport, Oxford, Perth, Portsmouth, Salford and York.
So, if you currently run an SME and want to receive a voucher worth up to £3,000 to improve your broadband, take advantage ASAP.
