Westminster council announces broadband voucher deal

Westminster City Council has recently secured £2.8m to deliver the European Regional Development fund (ERDF) project that will enable Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) in Westminster to purchase faster and better broadband using an approved list of broadband providers.

The Connect Westminster scheme will enable businesses within the borough to get £2k worth of vouchers towards an ultrafast capable connection.

Cllr Jonathan Glanz, Lead Member for the Shared Economy, said: “We are committed to increasing the provision of cost-effective ultrafast broadband by working with broadband providers to improve connectivity, as part of our ‘City for All’ priority.

“This in turn will enable SME businesses in Westminster to grow, increase productivity and access new markets which are of fundamental importance to London’s position as a leading global city.”
