Superconnected Craven Broadband Voucher Scheme
Almost all businesses in Craven can now apply for a voucher worth up to £3,000 to fund the costs associated with connecting to fibre or wireless broadband at superfast speeds.
The Superconnected Craven scheme supports sole traders, small and medium sized businesses, social enterprises and charities with a ‘connection voucher’ to fund eligible costs such as surveys, cabling, routers, and connection fees. Nationally applicants to the scheme can choose from over 700 registered suppliers.
The scheme operates through a simple application process with £40 million of vouchers available in England on a first come first served basis. Following submission of a completed application most businesses will receive a decision on their connection voucher within three working days.
As a member of the Leeds City Region the ‘Superconnected Craven’ scheme is administered by Leeds City Council on behalf of Craven District Council through the Superconnected Cities programme.
Further information on how to apply, including frequently asked questions and details of approved suppliers can be found at www.superconnectedcraven.co.uk or by calling 0113 395 0357.
