Westminster City Council has recently secured £2.8m to deliver an ERDF funding project that aims to connect SMEs within Westminster and the West End Partnership area to gigabit capable broadband connections. The Council sees the provision of future proof broadband as essential to help businesses to grow and break down barriers to growth.
The funding will enable small to medium sized enterprises to receive up to £2,000 towards the capital cost of their connections. All connections must deliver speeds of at least 30MB/s but have the capability of being configured to deliver gigabit speeds.
To support the delivery of the scheme the council will be running a supplier registration process to register a pool of registered suppliers who can deliver vouchers under the scheme.
The scheme will launch in early August and all registered suppliers will be sent more information in advance of this date.
