Westminster City Council has recently secured £2.8m to deliver a European Regional Development Fund project that aims to connect small and medium-sized enterprises (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.
You can find further detailed information on the scheme and how it operates by visiting Westminster Business Unit.
