Superfast Broadband

Superfast Broadband gives Birmingham businesses the speed they need to transform their business, helping them to grow and reach out to new customers and markets.

The Connection Voucher Scheme, which was run by Digital Birmingham, was designed to get SMEs connected to Superfast Broadband. The voucher was worth up to £3,000 and could be used to pay for all or part of the capital and equipment costs of getting a faster connection direct to your business.

Colmore BID worked with Digital Birmingham and partners to help to bring Superfast Broadband to the District and to encourage SME’s in the area to make use of the Voucher Scheme whilst it was available. This included running free workshops for businesses to find out more about the benefits of Superfast Broadband, and how to access the scheme. The sessions were aimed at SME’s and building owners.

Colmore BID also partnered with Metronet to offer businesses in Colmore Business District an exclusive deal on their services. To find out more about Metronet, click here.
