Broadband boost for West Sussex businesses

Broadband boost for West Sussex businesses

Businesses in West Sussex are being urged to apply for a new scheme that supports the installation of superfast broadband.

The West Sussex Superfast Broadband Connection Voucher scheme helps improve connectivity for SMEs that do not have access to superfast broadband.

Eligible businesses can apply for a Connection Voucher to provide capital funding of £3,000 or up to 40% of the overall project cost, whichever is lower.

The funding has been made available from the Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership under their ‘Growth is Digital’ priority project.

Coast to Capital chief executive, Jonathan Sharrock, said: “It is essential that our rural businesses have access to superfast and ultrafast broadband using the latest digital technologies.

“Through our Growth Deal, the West Sussex Superfast Broadband Voucher scheme supports small and medium enterprises with the capital cost of access to superfast connectivity.

“I urge them to find out more about the scheme.”

Eligible businesses and broadband infrastructure providers are invited to find out more about West Sussex Superfast Broadband Connection Vouchers at a workshop on the afternoon of Friday 9 September 2016 at the South Downs Centre in Midhurst.

The scheme will run until 1 February 2017 or until all the funding is allocated.
