1. WHAT IS IT?

The Gigabit Voucher Scheme is fast approaching its funding limit. This key government led initiative is driving innovation and connectivity across the UK. The scheme provides vouchers to contribute to the costs of installing gigabit-capable connectivity and infrastructure to eligible SMEs.

The time to apply for this scheme is fast running out and the value of vouchers will diminish. The time to act is now if you want to deliver a first in class service for your tenants.

2. HOW IT WORKS

2. HOW IT WORKS

It’s simple really, but there are a few steps that have to be covered to ensure we’re hitting all the right marks in this government initiative. Firstly, we need to cover off the SME eligibility criteria. To be eligible for a voucher, your tenants must have an annual turnover of less than €50 million or a balance sheet under €43 million and employ less than 250 staff.

Once eligibility is confirmed, we request vouchers from the government to cover the costs of your upgrade. We then work on installing gigabit capable connectivity, new switches, wireless access points and upgrade infrastructure to power your ambition and allow you to provide an excellent member experience to your tenants. Once the initiative is concluded – the quality of service is checked by the Government to ensure that everything is running smoothly.
