Government Grants to Boost your Broadband
Nottingham City Centre
Your business can get a connection Voucher of up to £3000 for faster, better business broadband through the Governments Broadband Connection Voucher Scheme.
The scheme has just become active in Nottingham from the 1st April 2015, after having been extended to 50 cities.

- Enhancing the way you communicate and collaborate through online video conference and cloud-based information sharing
- Future-proofing your business with the latest technology to meet your customers’ needs
