On Thursday 14th May at 1pm, the UK government ended their GBVS (Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme) which gave SME’s a grant of £2,500 towards the cost of their internet connection. As the installation fees for 36 month+ contracts are typically built into your monthly cost, the value of the grant equated to just under a £70 per month discount.

Recognising the incredible success of the GBVS scheme and how valuable such a significant discount would be to many businesses especially now, Telcom have taken up the mantle and worked hard to bring to market our very own Telcom Gigabit Voucher Scheme for eligible businesses.

What is Telcom’s Gigabit Voucher Scheme?

Today we are excited to announce that we have launched our exclusive Telcom Gigabit Voucher Scheme (TGVS) and are matching the GBVS value of £2,500 towards a fibre leased line for any eligible business. As mentioned above, this equates to just under £70 per month discount so offers real, long term support for our fellow SMEs. These vouchers provide practical and immediate help to firms struggling with slow broadband speeds, yet cost is a consideration

What can I use my Gigabit Voucher for?

Our goal is to help as many SME’s as possible with our Telecom Gigabit Voucher Scheme so we are allowing your voucher to be used for a variety of discounts. These include:
