Up to £3000 Superfast Broadband Grant Extends in West Yorkshire

Posted 5 years ago

If you haven’t already heard, grants are now available to most businesses within West Yorkshire to cover the costs of connecting to superfast broadband. This is part of a National Government Scheme being delivered locally, so businesses can upgrade to a faster, more reliable internet connection.

Eligible Areas

This scheme extends to all businesses in Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield & Leeds and Bradford council areas, so the scheme in is replicated in all 5 West Yorkshire districts. 

Installation costs of up to £3000 can be funded through the voucher scheme so the only cost to businesses would be the monthly line rental (and VAT on the installation which you would then claim back with your usual VAT Return).

Superfast broadband allows for faster download and uploads speeds

How businesses can benefit from higher speed broadband:-

  • Transferring data and information to your website or other platform is far easier to complete with a faster connection.
  • Cloud computing - Superfast broadband helps make this new way of storing your data and applications practical.
  • Communication via voice or video over the internet are all made possible through higher speed broadband.
  • Many smaller firms based in rural areas in West Yorkshire will need better access to high speed broadband in order to survive and expand.
  • Productivity levels of remote home workers, who need access to their corporate network, can be boosted with a higher speed connection, thus exploiting the business benefits of flexible working.
