New Government Funding Opportunity

New Government Funding Opportunity

Leicestershire and Leicester businesses and homes can now apply for the Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme as part of the government's £67million investment commitment to make a "full fibre Britain".

The scheme is primarily aimed at small and medium sized businesses who can claim up to £3,000 against the cost of the connection to a gigabit (1Gbps) broadband network either individually of as part of a group project. Residents can also apply for vouchers worth £500 individually or as a group, as long as a local business is also included. More »

Full fibre connections are faster, more reliable and cheaper to operate than traditional copper lines, and are capable of supporting not only gigabit, but terabit and even petabit speeds, which will serve the UK far into the future. Currently only around 3% of UK premises have access to a full fibre connection.

The scheme is supplier led and therefore only accessible through broadband service providers; the vouches are issued directly to the suppliers by government to offset the cost of the infrastructure installation.

It does not matter if applicants can already access superfast broadband speeds of 30Mbps or more. The initiative is focused on gigabit speeds, equivalent to 1,000Mbps.

TO APPLY: residents or businesses will have to do two things:
a) Check which approved suppliers are active in the area by using the postcode search:
Business:
https://gigabitvoucher.culture.gov.uk/for-businesses/suppliers/
Resident:
https://gigabitvoucher.culture.gov.uk/for-residents/suppliers/

b) Choose a supplier and contact them to ask for a quote. They will take care of the voucher application. It may be worth speaking to more than one supplier and to neighbouring businesses or residents who may also be interested.

Full details on this scheme can be found here, please circulate this information to anyone you think might find it useful.

Kind Regards,

Press Release from Arriva

Press Release from Arriva

"We are aware of the significant financial challenges faced by Leicestershire County Council and the current consultation on their future policy for public transport provision. The vast majority of Arriva's bus network in Leicestershire is commercially operated with no financial support from the County Council.

We would like to reassure customers that any changes made to LCC supported services under the new policy would not take place until June 2019 and we advise residents to take part in the public consultation atwww.leicestershire.gov.uk/have-your-say so that their views may be taken into consideration. More »

We remain committed to delivering quality and affordable transport throughout Leicestershire, and will continue to work alongside our partners at the Council to fulfil the public transport requirements of the communities we serve as long as it is viable to do so." » Less
