Boost for broadband

Business leaders in Morpeth have been urged to look into a broadband voucher scheme.

The Morpeth and District Chamber of Trade was given a presentation from Lee Richardson, of Coast Technology, about the Government incentive scheme, which provides funding for broadband installation or upgrading.

Businesses, charities and not-for-profit organisations are eligible for up to £3,000 of support, provided they have less then £36million turnover, less than 250 employees or volunteers, and have received less than £200,000 in Government funding in the past three years.
