Business Broadband Grant – Register Now!

Business Broadband Grant

Your business could qualify for a grant to access high-speed broadband connectivity.

As the Scheme is due to close by the end of March 2021, we advise interested businesses to REGISTER NOW.

Connecting Shropshire, in partnership with Fastershire & Superfast Telford and part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund, have developed the Marches & Gloucestershire Business Broadband Grant.

The grant can provide up to 100% of the capital installation cost, up to a maximum of £25K.


Your business must be:

  • located in Shropshire, Herefordshire or Gloucestershire
  • a small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) and operate within an eligible sector
  • able to demonstrate an economic case for high-speed broadband connectivity
  • beyond the scope of committed broadband infrastructure roll-out plans.

Next steps:

Step 1 – Register on the Marches & Gloucestershire Business Broadband Grant portal, click here. Registration is subject to approval and can take up five working days.

Step 2 – Once approved, you will be required to complete a ‘request for quotation’ form.

Step 3 – Suppliers registered under the scheme will then submit quotes and you are able to select your preferred supplier.
