Your Borough Of Poole

Superfast Broadband grants available for businesses

Borough of Poole is encouraging local small and medium sized enterprises (SME) and third sector organisations to get connected to superfast broadband more cheaply through a new Connection Voucher Scheme.

Local businesses can apply for vouchers from £100 to £3,000 to cover the cost of connecting to a better broadband service.

Using a faster, better broadband offers many benefits to businesses including increased productivity and improved customer service through faster upload and download speeds and increased security. It also helps to future-proof businesses for the digital challenges of tomorrow.

Adrian Trevett, Economic Development Manager, Borough of Poole, said: “This is a great opportunity for local businesses to take advantage of the latest broadband technology. This new scheme is likely to drive economic growth locally by improving business productivity and helping businesses increase mobile-commerce, so we would encourage businesses to see how this scheme could help them.”

Businesses from across Poole, Bournemouth and Dorset are eligible to apply. The scheme is available until 31 March 2016 and vouchers are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
