In October 2015 the Government announced it was pulling the plug on the Super Connected Cities voucher scheme. HBT Communications takes a look at other funding opportunities available to Coventry and Warwickshire businesses.
Super Connected Cities was launched at the end of December 2013, and it granted businesses up to £3000 of free funding to upgrade their internet connection to super-fast. Connection vouchers were applied for through Coventry City Council and only businesses with an eligible postcode could apply. The scheme was slow to take off, but momentum built and by the time the scheme finished we calculated HBT had secured nearly £322,000 in voucher funding for our clients.
If you missed out on Connection Vouchers or found you weren’t eligible, there are new funding opportunities for you to explore.
A number of network providers have put their own funding in place to soften the blow of the removal of the connection vouchers. One of our solution partners, Gamma, who provide telephone and broadband connections, is offering businesses free installation up to the value of £2,800. The advantage of the Gamma scheme is that unlike the Government scheme, its funding is not location specific.
