Businesses: You can get up to £3,000 for high-speed broadband

Is your slow internet connection holding you back? A new scheme launched by the Mayor of London can help. If you have a business, social enterprise or charity based in Westminster, you can apply for up to £3,000 towards a faster broadband connection of 30 Mbit/s or more.

While the scheme will be launched across London by spring 2014, businesses based in Westminster can apply now. Here are just some of the benefits of the scheme:

• Flexible storage space means your business won’t need to buy additional server hardware when it grows
• Your staff can access all files and applications on the go, so it's easier to work when and where they need to
• All your files are backed up
• Send large files quickly and securely
• Customer and supplier management systems will be more efficient and accessible
• The fast connection means you can enjoy reliable video conferencing and make the most of the web.

Interested? Then check if you’re eligible and apply for a connection voucher here. The voucher can also be used towards a dedicated business grade broadband service.

If you’re not sure of your current business broadband speed, you can check it on the Broadband Speed checker website.
