Up to £3,000 available to charities that upgrade to faster internet

Many charities in 50 cities across the UK have access to vouchers worth up to £3,000 towards the cost of installing improved broadband connectivity thanks to the government’s Super Connected Cities (SCC) programme.

The vouchers are being offered on a first-come, first-served basis to companies as well as charities and are expected to run out soon – charities are strongly urged to look into whether they can benefit sooner than later.

Extra discounts for charities

Tech Trust has partnered with Virgin Media Business who is offering extra discounts to charities on top of its SCC discounts.

That means that SCC-eligible charities can get 50Mb broadband plus unlimited calls and extra features for the same price as the already discounted SCC rate for 50Mb broadband alone. Alternatively, charities can get 152Mb broadband without telephone connection for the same price.

To qualify, charities need to be for the government’s SCC scheme. You can find out more about the scheme and eligibility criteria here.

Fill out the form below and a Virgin Media Business expert to get in touch. They’ll be able to tell you more about all of the options available and exactly how your charity can benefit. If you take their Internet connectivity they’ll help you secure your voucher as part of the application process.
