Rural residents and small to medium-sized businesses (SME) in Staffordshire can now benefit from the fastest and most reliable broadband connectivity if they choose a gigabit-capable service as part of a group project.
Staffordshire County Council will pay up to an additional £2,000 per premises in order to help connect harder-to-reach groups of rural properties.
Group projects are when two or more residents or businesses get together to combine their vouchers towards the cost of connections.
No separate application is required as eligible properties will receive the top-up funding when benefiting from a Rural Gigabit Voucher through a registered supplier.
