Broadband voucher scheme to end early thanks to high demand
The government has urged small business owners to consider signing up for its ultrafast broadband connection voucher scheme before the available funding runs out.
The £67M scheme, run by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), was set up in March 2018, offering qualifying SMEs grants of up to £3,000 to cover the cost of installing a gigabit-capable fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP), or full-fibre, broadband service.
It was supposed to run until March 2021, but take-up has proven so extensive – 6,927 vouchers have been issued to date – that the funding pot will run dry much sooner than thought, said the government.
