Broadband grants for Exeter businesses
Businesses in Exeter are to benefit from the rollout of a new grants system that will enable firms to connect to new superfast infrastructure.

Companies in the area are soon to be given access to the Government Broadband Connection Voucher scheme, This is the West Country reports.

From April 1st, local businesses will be able to apply for grants of up to £3,000 towards the installation of measures to connect their premises to superfast broadband networks in areas where this service is not already available.

Exeter Lead Councillor for Economy and Culture Rose Denham commented: "The inclusion of Exeter in this initiative is ... very much welcomed and I hope that Exeter's small and medium-sized companies will take advantage of the Connection Voucher scheme to upgrade their broadband connection."

Soon to be open to all firms within the EX1 to EX5 postcodes, the money can be used for the setting up of new fibre connections, a better broadband link or the delivery of improved lease arrangements with existing service providers.
