Could your business benefit from the fastest fibre broadband in the UK?
And do you want it installed for free?
If the answer to both these questions is yes then time is running out to make it happen.
In May, the government launched its £67m Gigabit Voucher Scheme to fund a faster rollout of fibre broadband across the UK.
The means any business with standard copper broadband – or no internet at all – can claim up to £2,500 towards the cost of having Lightstream fibre broadband installed.
Alan Worthing, KCOM’s director of business, said: “Time is running out for businesses who want to get their share of the Government’s Gigabit voucher scheme fund. The fund is allocated on a first-come first serve basis, so when the money’s gone, it’s gone.
“It’s not often that you can get something for nothing but, in this case, it’s true. The Government is offering to pay for businesses to connect to full fibre broadband as part of its vision of creating a gigabit economy fit for the 21st Century.
“Having an ultrafast internet connection can enable your business and employees to work faster, smarter and more efficiently and to provide more and better services for your customers.
“There’s nothing to lose and everything to gain by getting on board with Lightstream broadband. So, if you run your own business - or work from home and need your broadband to be as fast and reliable as it would be in any office - I’d urge you to take advantage of this offer while you can.”
So far nearly 300 small and medium sized businesses across Hull and East Yorkshire have taken up the offer with hundreds of thousands of pounds already given away in vouchers.
The process of registering and having Lightstream installed is quick and simple and should take a matter of weeks.
Businesses taking up the voucher offer will benefit from one of the fastest fibre broadband services in Europe while also enjoying generous data allowances, next working day repair and expert local technical support, seven days a week.
