As a registered supplier on the Government’s Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme, SoConnect has seen many SMEs already benefiting from registering. With up to £2,500 towards installation and equipment costs, the scheme allows businesses just like yours to significantly upgrade your  internet connection ensuring you receive the most reliable and fastest speeds available.

The Government’s commitment to its strategy to improve the connectivity of businesses throughout the UK has seen the issuing of vouchers to help with the initial set up fees that may deter SMEs from benefiting from gigabit technology. The scheme, ran by the Department for Digital, Culture Media & Sport can ensure affordability for eligible businesses.

An ultra-fast gigabit enabled connection allows a business of any size to upload, share, download and access substantial amounts of data efficiently and reliably; giving businesses the option to embrace a move to enhanced digital working, and the ability to utilise advanced cloud-based solutions, in turn increasing the effectiveness of your day to day operations.

Speeds on Gigabit connections start at a superfast 100Mbps, with the potential of reaching dizzying speeds of 1Gb (or 1,000Mb) per second.   Compared to the UK average speed of just 36Mbps, it’s not surprising to see so many SMEs taking advantage of the opportunities enabled by a full fibre broadband connection.

The scheme’s popularity means that time may be running out to share in the initiative’s £67m fund, and we would recommend checking your eligibility and registering your interest with SoConnect today.  You can get in touch with us on 0333 240 1824 or email us at sales@soconnect.co.uk.

Our knowledgeable consultants can guide you through the process making it easy to upgrade to an ultra-fast gigabit enabled connection.

Don’t just take our word for it:

“We chose SoConnect as they were very patient with us and always kept us up-to-date throughout the order process.  Installing a high-speed leased line will make a huge difference to our working day as our current internet connection is very unreliable and slow.  We’re very impressed with the seamless connection voucher process and we’ve already recommended SoConnect to other local businesses.”  – Doc Society
