Launched by the government as part of their Local Full Fibre Networks Programme, the scheme provides connectivity grants and support for small and medium-sized businesses.
For businesses with up to 249 employees and a balance sheet of up to €43m, vouchers between £500 and £3,000 are available to support the capital costs of getting a gigabit capable connection.The government recently introduced Rural Gigabit vouchers as part of this scheme. Rural premises, experiencing speeds below 30 Megabit per second (Mbps), will be eligible for up to £3,500 per small and medium-sized business (SME).
Why do you need a gigabit capable connection?
Many smaller businesses feel the need to invest in leading technology, but they can experience limitations based on the cost or their location.
The UK now has 95% coverage for superfast broadband with speeds of 24 megabits per second or higher. Most superfast connections still depend on copper telephone wires and are therefore limited in the speeds they can support.
For the fastest and most reliable broadband, capable of delivering gigabit speeds, a full fibre connection is required.
One gigabit is the same as 1,000 megabits – so it’s a big leap forward in connection speeds that could benefit you and your business.
There are many reasons why you should get a dedicated internet connection with this scheme. It’s highly scalable, reliable and quick. Better connectivity will boost productivity and support remote working, data backup, hosted telephony and cloud connectivity.
