Businesses across Middlesbrough are to benefit from the launch of a new programme aimed at delivering new superfast broadband infrastructure for the local area.

Recently outlined by chancellor George Osborne, the Broadband Connection Voucher Scheme is to offer funds to businesses wishing to improve their level of connectivity in order to help their firm deliver a boost to their local economy.

Mr Osborne stated: "Available from April 1st, it will help local businesses to access faster, better broadband."

Gazette Live reports the scheme is targeted mainly at small to medium-sized enterprises and will be available from the start of April until March 2016.

Businesses will receive grants of up to £3,000 for the installation of faster broadband systems at their premises as part of the project. It forms part of the ongoing £150 million SuperConnected Cities programme from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.
