As more and more of the world’s money changes hands online, better British connectivity means a better British economy – and so far, the Government has made a £530 million public investment in broadband to make this happen.
Better Broadband Scheme
Whether you’re running a business or shopping online, a slow broadband speed can be incredibly frustrating. The Better Broadband Scheme has been developed by the UK government to give immediate assistance to those people suffering with the slowest speeds by providing a subsidised installation for a better connection.
The Better Broadband Subsidy Scheme will cover or contribute to the cost of installing improved wireless or satellite broadband for eligible businesses and homes who are currently stuck with speeds of less than 2 Mbps. With savings of up to £350 for each home and business, the scheme is part of the government’s plans to get the whole country better connected.
By boosting the internet speed for households,the Better Broadband Scheme will allow families to browse the web, stream movies and check emails all at the same time.The scheme will also deliver a better internet experience for businesses and local start ups who can communicate with clients, check up on orders and stay up to date with market trends more efficiently.
Applications to the subsidy scheme can be made until the end of 2017 and will not prevent your premises from being considered for a superfast broadband upgrade in the future. To find out if you are eligible and for more information about the Better Broadband Scheme, call us now on 01323 400 500
