Broadband Connection Voucher Scheme for SMEs (UK)

The UK Government has announced that small businesses in 10 cities across the UK will be able to benefit from a £100m pot of money to connect them to better quality, high speed broadband.
The cities currently eligible to offer broadband connection vouchers are:
• Belfast
• Salford
• Portsmouth
• Cardiff
• Derby
• Bristol
• Edinburgh
• Newport
• London
• Manchester.
The broadband connection voucher scheme will then be extended to 12 other cities around the UK in early 2014. The roll out of the Connection Voucher Scheme across all 22 cities follows successful market testing in five cities over the summer of 2013. Highly innovative, and breaking new ground in the telecommunications sector, the scheme aims to bring the benefits of faster and better broadband to as many SMEs as possible by 2015. The scheme will allow businesses to apply for grants of up to £3,000 each to cover the costs of installing faster and better broadband, allowing them to offer customers faster service and increased reliability.
