Get £2,500 funding towards your next internet connection
Following on from the success of the Government Gigabit Connection Voucher Scheme, organised by the Department for Digital, Culture Media & Sport, Telcom have launched its own voucher scheme to finish the job and bring gigabit connectivity to businesses across the UK.
Voucher funding can be applied to:
- Free installation
- Monthly discount
- Faster speeds
- Free periods
- Additional networking items (WiFi, equipment or managed services)
There are a limited number of vouchers to distribute nationally, so we recommend that businesses consider claiming as soon as possible before they are all gone.
Claim up to £2500
Moving into a new office space or wish to upgrade your existing connection in a building that already has access to fibre.
Claim dependant on group size
In an existing building or estate, and without access to affordable fibre connectivity? Pool yours and your neighbours vouchers together to unlock a whole building/estate fibre upgrade.
