SuperConnected Cities

SuperConnected Cities

Businesses in Manchester and Salford are benefiting from internet connectivity grants. Are you?

We have a commitment to support local businesses and are helping to fund the installation of superfast internet connectivity with up to £3,000 of vouchers.

Faster connection can make your business more efficient, cheaper to run and easier to develop:

  • More people can share your connection at one time and still enjoy high speeds.
  • Services such as videoconferencing, which require faster speeds, work better.
  • ‘Voice over IP’ becomes possible for more users, replacing conventional telephones.
  • ‘Cloud’-based services (storing information ‘virtually’) work faster and with shorter delays.

It’s a grant, not a loan, so you don’t need to pay us back.

In most cases, the vouchers (accepted by most internet service providers, including the best-known household names) will cover the cost of getting connected, leaving you to pay just the VAT and monthly subscription.

If you’re a sole trader, a self-employed home worker, or if you employ fewer than 250 people, you could be eligible for this grant*. As long as your turnover is less than £43million each year (even if you share a building with other business tenants, or your landlord provides a managed service) you can apply.

It’s easy to apply – just visit manchester.gov.uk/superconnected and request a quote.

Read how two other businesses have already benefited.

*Eligibility will be decided on a number of criteria, including size and type of business.
