GIGABIT BROADBAND VOUCHER SCHEME
Is slow internet connectivity holding your business back?
Are seemingly high costs preventing your business from upgrading to faster internet speeds?
The UK Government are running a Gigabit business connectivity voucher scheme offering eligible SMEs in the UK vouchers up to £3,000 towards upgrading their broadband, which they can receive via registered suppliers including Diva Telecom.
The Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme with a £67 million fund is part of the Local Full Fibre Networks (LFFN) Programme and delivered by Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK), who are part of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) in conjunction with local bodies across the UK. The aim is to encourage the market to extend full fibre infrastructure in the UK by increasing demand and reducing the cost to customers.
WHY CHOOSE DIVA?
As one of the first companies to receive the fully registered supplier status, Diva Telecom can offer the Digital Vouchers to eligible SMEs towards connecting to the ultrafast Gigabit City network at reduced monthly costs.
Since becoming CityFibre’s chosen launch partner in Leeds, Diva Telecom received national recognition via the “Connected Britain Award” at NextGen Digital Challenge 2017 for our work in transforming businesses in Leeds.
Business benefits of full fibre connections include the up and download of even the largest files in seconds, boosted productivity, maximising cloud, video conferencing, reliability and much more which can be found here.
