Worcestershire Businesses encouraged to apply for Gigabit Broadband Vouchers

Local businesses and residents are being encouraged to apply for the Superfast Worcestershire Gigabit Voucher Scheme.

The Gigabit Voucher scheme is run by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport. In May 2018, the Gigabit Broadband Voucher scheme was launched as part of a national £67m funded programme. The aim of the scheme is to provide the fastest and most reliable full fibre broadband connections available, and the government is committed to this vision of a ‘full fibre Britain’.

Communities can benefit from the Voucher scheme with up to £2500 per business and £500 per residential premises. Funding is being allocated quickly so it is encouraged to register your interest as soon as possible.

Worcestershire has already seen considerable success with the scheme and 214 vouchers have been issued already amounting to £470,000.

To register your interest or find out more, get in touch with the Superfast Worcestershire team by emailing superfast@worcestershire.gov.uk or phoning 01905 846432
