Connectivity Voucher Scheme
Up to £1,000 of funding up for grabs for Leeds City Region SMEs to help boost their business broadband speeds.
Are slow broadband speeds causing issues for your business? Would you like to upgrade to faster broadband so that your business can grow, develop and stand out from your competitors? Would you like help with covering the costs of upgrading to a faster broadband connection? If so, a ‘Connectivity Voucher’ may just be what you are looking for.
Digital Enterprise, the innovative business support programme, is offering eligible businesses a grant/voucher worth between £500 to £1,000 to help them to upgrade to faster broadband (over 30 mbps) and the associated costs. If the current download speed is above 30 mbps, then the voucher can be used towards a new higher speed connection which will double the broadband speed.
As long as businesses spend part of the voucher on upgrading their broadband connection, the voucher can also be used to help fund the purchase of relevant hardware (eg firewall, router, receiver/antennae for wireless connections), virtual servers and software licences, network cabling and consultancy/project management.
The Connectivity Voucher scheme is proving to be extremely popular, and with only 250 vouchers being available on a first come first served basis, make sure you apply now before it is too late.
Further details on the Connectivity Voucher scheme can be found on the Digital Enterprise website Alternatively, if you have any questions about the scheme then don’t hesitate to contact us at enquiries.DE@leeds.gov.uk
