 “Superfast broadband is a business critical resource for many companies and make a “huge boost” to businesses.”

The Government’s Broadband Connection Vouchers scheme is active in 22 cities around the country and is registered with over 500 suppliers. Now the UK Government have extended this voucher scheme until March 2016, they have invested a further £40 million to help more SME’s around the country, so far 5000 SMEs have already benefited from the scheme.

SMEs, charities and social enterprises across Newcastle, Gateshead and North Tyneside are being encouraged to apply. The free funding from Go Digital Newcastle is funded by the Government’s SuperConnected Cities programme, run by the city council. Businesses can apply for themselves, and landlords can get multiple vouchers on behalf of their tenants.

Connection Vouchers Impact

Mark Goldstone, Head of Business Representation and Policy at West & North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce, said the extension represents a “huge boost” to businesses in West Yorkshire, where take-up has so far been stronger than anywhere else outside of London. He added: “Superfast broadband is a business critical resource for many companies, and these vouchers take just minutes to apply for and don’t require any match funding.”

Before, the vouchers were only available to West Yorkshire businesses within the Leeds and Bradford districts, but now more than 27,000 extra firms will be able to take advantage of the vouchers.

Now more businesses around the North East can take the opportunities from the extension of the Connection Voucher scheme. Like Yorkshire and Scotland, North Tyneside can offer its commercial landlords and businesses super fast, speedy broadband.
