BtL Communication are now a registered supplier for the new gigabit voucher scheme; part of the Local Full Fibre Networks (LFFN) project from the government’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS).
At BtL we fully support DCMS’s drive to bring high capacity internet connections to businesses across the UK. As a specialist internet service provider for businesses nationwide, we understand the transformative effect that good connectivity can have on a business and the negative impact that can be made by poor connectivity.
The Gigabit Voucher scheme allows SMEs in the UK to claim a discount voucher of up to £3,000 against the cost of installing a consistently superfast and reliable gigabit capable connection. This is a supplier-led scheme, which means that all you have to do is:
Choose one of our packages
Ask us to provide your connectivity
If the cost of installation is above £3,000, pay any top-up charges
Allow us to install your new, super fast connection. We claim the value of the voucher back from DCMS
Pay the pre-agreed monthly charges for your data, which will vary depending on the package chosen
With the Government voucher scheme, you will see improvements in your connectivity such as:
1,000 Mbps network capability
Location flexibility and ability to work remotely from your office
Greater ability to rely on cloud computing and accessing externally stored files
Connectivity is business-critical in the world, with companies increasingly benefitting from digitisation every year. Businesses across all industry segments are depending more heavily on internet connectivity and communication. From client communication to accessing remote cloud storage solutions, businesses gain huge benefits from consistent and dependable internet connectivity. The Gigabit Voucher Scheme will help your business embrace newer technologies such as cloud-based options, VoIP and other hosted services so you can keep up with your competition.
Although the connection provided by us must be capable of delivering up to 1Gbps, if you think that your business may not need such a high speed, we are offering packages allowing for the following speeds:
- 200Mbps on 1Gbps bearer
- 500Mbps on 1Gbps bearer
- 1Gbps on 1Gbps bearer
This means that as your business grows, you can scale up your connection to meet your changing demands.
It’s possible for SMEs within a small geographic area (at a business park, hub, or sharing a building, for example) to pool their vouchers and get a collective discount on the provision of gigabit technology, so even if you don’t think your business needs this kind of connection just yet, it’s worth seeing whether your business neighbours might want to share one with you.
We aim to provide you with excellent service and your own dedicated account manager alongside the most reliable connectivity to keep your business on track.
