Have your say

FIRMS are being invited to apply for a discount off broadband.

A team from Portsmouth City Council is holding events to speak to businesses about getting superfast broadband.

Companies can get vouchers worth up to £3,000 for the connection.

Councillor Lee Mason said: ‘With small businesses and start-ups’ success dependent on fast broadband this grant scheme is here to help with the costs of installing superfast broadband.

‘Superfast broadband allows you to make video calls, upload large files and install telephony to help improve customer service and increase competitiveness.

‘We want to encourage businesses to visit the Super Connected team at these events and to take advantage of this scheme to help grow and access new markets.’

The sessions will also offer bookings for a free IT consultation.

See them at Barclays Bank, Southsea, on Friday; at the Square Tower on Wednesday, February 25 and the Marriott Hotel on Friday, March 6.
