“Allowing yourselves to upgrade to a superfast network can really rocket your business up to the sky.”

The Government in an attempt to increase the take-up of very fast broadband services in cities across the UK has created a fund of £150 million which was originally intended to fund ultra-fast projects in the cities.

SMEs, charities and social enterprises across Sunderland, Washington and South 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.

Think of all the electronic components in your company that superfast speedy broadband can have a HUGE impact on; TV’s, Computers, laptops, phones and you could even use VoIP (this allows you to call people over the internet and not over a phone line). This technology is not being used at its fullest potential and allowing yourselves to upgrade to a superfast network can really rocket your business up to the sky.

So Why Upgrade?

Upgrading your business broadband brings real benefits. A better connection can help you to boost your bottom line by:

  • Increasing your profits by offering better services to more satisfied customers
  • Improving your customers’ experience with quicker, communication and faster file-sharing thanks to higher upload and download speeds, especially for large files
  • Reducing software and hardware costs by helping you switch to online data storage solutions
  • Enhancing the way you communicate and collaborate through online video conference and cloud-based information sharing
  • Future-proofing your business with the latest technology to meet your customers’ needs
