Connect Westminster

  • Overview


The Scheme

Westminster City Council has recently secured £2.8m to deliver a European Regional Development funding project that aims to connect SMEs within Westminster and the West End Partnership area to gigabit capable broadband connections. The Council sees the provision of future proof broadband as essential to help businesses to grow and break down barriers to growth.

The funding will enable small to medium sized enterprises to receive up to £2,000 towards the capital cost of your connection.

Are you Eligible?

Broadband Connect Westminster vouchers are available to Small or Medium Enterprises (SMEs) if:

– You are a business employing less than 250 staff, registered charity, social enterprise or sole trader.
– Installation of your new broadband connection exceeds £100.
– The connection is for your business premises. You can apply for a connection at home if this is your main work base, but this does not apply if you work from home occasionally.
– The broadband service you select delivers a speed and performance improvement on your current connection.
– You have not received more than £200,000 in grants in the last 3 years.
