Connectivity+ Vouchers

Our Connectivity+ Voucher scheme, offering between £500 and £3,000 of funding can help you to cover the cost of upgrading to faster, more reliable digital connection/broadband.


Many firms that wish to grow and develop are inhibited by the quality of their digital connection, including poor broadband speeds and high costs for upgrading to a faster/more reliable service.

The Connectivity+ Voucher is designed to help businesses cover some of the costs of upgrading to a faster connection. Vouchers can also be used to cover other costs associated including:

  • The actual cost of the installation i.e. the cost of the physical connection, including excess construction costs to reach a network
  • Hardware related to facilitating the connection e.g. a firewall, router, receiver/antennae (for wireless connections)
  • Internal ethernet network cabling
  • Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephony
  • Consultancy/project management cost to install a connection – capped at 25% of the value of a voucher

Connectivity+ Vouchers can also be used in certain circumstances to cover the cost (or partial cost) of a first year rental of a connectivity solution providing the first year is paid to the supplier in full at the start of the contract.

Connectivity+ Vouchers are intended to help businesses upgrade to higher speed business grade broadband, above 30 mbps. If your current download speed is above 30 mbps, then a new higher speed connection should double the broadband speed.
