The Government are now offering Connection Vouchers in 26 “Super Connected Cities” offering grants of up to £3,000 towards the install costs for leased lines.
Why not try our interactive Eligibility Checker to help you work out if you could apply for a Connection Voucher?
Connection Vouchers are available to you if
- You are located in an eligible area in one of the cities taking part in the scheme – see the list here
- You are a SME (Small or Medium Enterprise), Charity or Social Enterprise
- Your connection will cost over £100 – if it is less than that we can’t offer you a Voucher
- You are asking for a connection to your business premises. If your main work base is at home you can have a connection there, but not if you just work from home occasionally
- You are willing to sign up for a minimum 6 month contract with your supplier
- You select a service that delivers a speed or performance improvement – there are some detailed requirements on speed that you should check before applying
- You have not received more than £120,000 in grants in the last three years
Please also see your city’s page to check for local eligibility rules. Each city has local guidance and terms and conditions that you need to read as part of the application process. If your city isn’t offering vouchers yet, you can Register Your Interest by clicking here.
If you are successful in being awarded a Connection Voucher we will ask you to sign up to those terms and conditions, so it is important that you understand all the information before you apply.
