Companies across Coventry and Warwickshire will have help moving into the digital age in 2018 due to the range of support available.
Major investments have been made in the broadband infrastructure across the region and that is set to continue, giving firms across the city and the county the opportunity to bolster their business through better and more efficient use of ICT.
The Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce is offering companies across the region match-funded connection vouchers on projects up to a maximum of £2,500 that will help them to transform their digital capabilities.
The voucher can be used to acquire a superfast internet connection as well as equipment or networking capacity that would allow companies to make the most of new technology and help grow their business.
Companies must be based in Coventry or Warwickshire postcodes and must have a broadband speed of less than 30Mbps to qualify for the vouchers
The vouchers are part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) which is part of a larger project, working with CSW Broadband, which operates across the region to improve broadband speeds.
The Chamber scheme sits alongside the recently-launched UK Government Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme, which is aimed at companies looking to access 1,000 Mbps.
