by Alex Tough

The Government Broadband Vouchers scheme is active in 22 cities around the country and is registered with over 500 suppliers.

On 3 December, the Chancellor announced that the Government will make up to £40m available from April 2015 to March 2016 to support more cities administer The BDUK vouchers. These will be made available on a first come, first served basis. The current BDUK Connection Voucher scheme closes on 31 March 2016.

SMEs, charities and social enterprises across Sunderland are being encouraged to apply. The free funding from Rymote is funded by the Government’s SuperConnected Cities programme, also in partnership with Sunderland City Council. Businesses can apply for themselves, and landlords can get multiple vouchers on behalf of their tenants.
