Businesses can access £2,500 funding through Connectus

29th August 2018

With the Government committing to a vision of a full fibre Britain by 2033, businesses could be eligible for grant funding to upgrade their connectivity.
Full Fibre broadband connections offer the fastest and most reliable internet speeds available, and as part of the Governments initiative, BDUK has announced a £67m Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme meaning all small and medium sized businesses across the UK can now apply for a £2,500 Gigabit voucher, to be used towards the installation costs of a gigabit capable connection.
Doncaster based telecommunications specialists Connectus Group Limited is a pre-approved Government supplier, who can offer businesses the support and guidance required when applying for a BDUK grant, making it even easier to get businesses connected to superfast broadband.
Andy Marsden, business development director for Connectus Group Limited explains: “There has been a huge take up of the £67m funding already, so make sure you take advantage of the £2,500 grant today, to help improve your organisations broadband connectivity.
“Demand for faster digital connectivity is set to accelerate in upcoming years and getting ready for gigabit internet speeds is an essential step for most businesses, don’t get left behind as we discontinue our legacy slower speeds in favour of our full fibre strategy”
To be eligible to apply for a Gigabit voucher, businesses must employ fewer than 250 people and have an annual turnover not exceeding £50 million and/or an annual balance sheet total not exceeding £43 million.
Businesses must also not have received more than the permitted amount of grant funding in the last three years. The broadband connection speeds that businesses are looking to achieve with the new internet connection, must also double the current broadband speeds.
