Culture secretary Maria Miller recently announced that the government is making £100 million available to small businesses to help them access faster broadband. This is part of the Super Connected Cities programme, which will give SME’s the opportunity to apply for £3000 ants to enable super fast broadband services. This is part of a drive to ensure the UK becomes the best place in Europe to do business.
In addition to this, the UK Government has already provided almost £57 million to the Welsh Government in order to ensure that broadband access is available to homes and businesses in some of the hardest to reach parts of Wales.
The cities eligible today are Belfast, Salford, Portsmouth, Cardiff, Derby, Bristol, Edinburgh, Newport, London and Manchester.
