Act now, don't wait - funding running out for city and county businesses to improve their broadband connectivityPublished Friday, 7th August 2015
Businesses across Leicester are being urged to take the offer of help to get faster broadband as part of a voucher scheme across Leicester and Leicestershire.
All county businesses are now eligible to apply for the broadband connection voucher scheme which is already on offer in the city and parts of the county.
Gaining faster broadband connectivity can help businesses to save time, money, increase productivity and provide a greater service for their customer base.
Karl Nicolson, director of Spectrum Printing, in Hamilton, said: "Before we had superfast broadband we were managing on 2mbps download and 200kbps upload. These extremely slow speeds were stopping us from moving forward in a digital capacity.
"Now we do not have that to do, the time and money saved will enable us to explore services previously not available to us, such as online webinar services, helping our sales team to present over the web rather than face to face, saving travel time and petrol costs."
“I am extremely pleased that the Broadband Voucher Scheme has been extended to include all of the county businesses as this will clearly help with their business technologies and enabling them to compete locally and nationally with improved broadband connections”
