Voucher funding to connect to York gigabit network

The digital connectivity of the business community in the city of York, UK, has taken a leap forward with the launch of a connection voucher scheme as part of the SuperConnected Cities programme. The vouchers offer businesses up to £3,000 towards network connection costs, enabling them to access affordable gigabit speed services in the city over CityFibre’s pure fibre network, the York CORE.

The network already supports Gigabit speed services to around 190 sites across the city, providing council offices, schools, hospitals and businesses with next generation digital connectivity that is transforming the way that the city of York operates and communicates in the digital age. The voucher scheme, launched by the City of York Council last week, will enable even more companies to take advantage of the long-term benefits of the fibre network.

'The voucher scheme is the perfect opportunity for York’s businesses to super-charge their connectivity,' said Greg Mesch, CEO at CityFibre.

'Our partners, York Data Services, Pinacl Solutions and Razorblue are all offering transformational gigabit connectivity solutions that take full advantage of the unique Gigabit capabilities of the York CORE. With up to £3000 towards the cost of connection, what business could afford to miss out on this opportunity?'
