Businesses can get up to £3,000 for faster, better broadband through the Government's Broadband Connection Vouchers scheme.

Bristol is one of the 22 city regions across the UK where the scheme is active. This free seminar, organised jointly between INCA and Bristol City Council, is aimed at small businesses in and around Bristol and providers of business connectivity services.

The seminar will cover:

  • How the scheme works and what costs can be covered
  • How businesses can apply for connection vouchers
  • Pooling vouchers in group schemes to improve connectivity for a business park, retail or business centre
  • Case studies of businesses that have benefitted
  • Suppliers who can provide connectivity

This event is designed to bring together the business community in Bristol with INCA members and others involved in providing connectivity and related services.

This event forms part of INCA's Transform Digital conference programme. View the main conference programme.

 

Seminar participants are able to register for the following additonal optional events also taking place on September 15:

This showcase will be a series of presentations, educational segments, case studies and roadmap sessions from a range of companies who can help anyone interested in investing, designing or building a Next Generation Broadband infrastructure – ‘Superfast’ and ‘Ultrafast’.
