Satellite provider Internet Anywhere seeks Â£125k in crowdfunding
Internet Anywhere is taking part in an innovative crowdfunding initiative.Satellite broadband provider Internet Anywhere hopes to raise Â£125,000 via crowdfunding platform Squareknot in a bid to improve connectivity across rural Scotland.
Established in 2011, the company is Scotland's largest reseller of services delivered by satellite operator Eutelsast. It offers download speeds of up to 20Mbps and uploads of 6Mbps.Â
It hopes to use the funding to eliminate the problem of slow or non-existent broadband across rural parts of the country - an issue that currently affects more than 300,000 Scottish properties.
Internet Anywhere is hoping to attract investments of Â£1,000 each from 125 people, who will be rewarded with a free satellite broadband system and Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme tax relief.
John Fitzgerald, owner of Internet Anywhere, said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for us, particularly in the current climate where traditional ways of financing business are now virtually non-existent. We're delighted to be involved in such an innovative project."
