Stirling Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme
Stirling might be the smallest city in Scotland but with businesses in Stirling now eligible for the Government’s Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme allowing eligible businesses to apply for a government grant of up to £3000 to contribute to the installation cost of a gigabit-capable connection.
A gigabit connection can offer speeds of up to 1,000 Mbps, meaning a faster and more capable connection for your business and your customers. It provides faster upload and download times allowing your business to run technologies such as hosted Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephony and cloud applications.
All businesses can benefit from better connectivity but hotels and restaurants are a great example of Internet reliance. Monachyle Mhor owner, Tom Lewis, estimated that the cost to the business of compensating for poor connectivity is at least the equivalent cost of one full-time member of staff. For businesses who rely on the Internet to run a website, facilitate online booking, order online and provide connectivity to guests, the improved infrastructure to the area is a huge step in the right direction for business growth.
With superfast connectivity considered the gateway to better working practices, cost efficiencies and competitive advantage, it’s worth checking your business’ eligibility today.
