Lancashire UK Firms Get Free Seminars On Benefitting from Fast Broadband

The state aid supported Superfast Lancashire project, which aims to make BT’s superfast broadband (FTTC/P) services available to 97% of local premises by the end of 2014 2015 (here), has begun offering free seminars that will teach businesses how to get the most out of the new internet access technologies.

The new Business Support Programme will be underpinned by a team of advisers that can also offer free support (including face-to-face), training workshops and skills master classes to eligible firms.

Apparently the offer is being targeted at small and medium sized businesses that are a home for up to 250 employees.

Mark Chamberlain, Leader of the Programme, said (Lancashire Telegraph):

The advisory team is trained to show businesses from around East Lancashire how to use high-speed broadband to improve the way they operate, to boost productivity and streamline the way they connect with customers, staff and suppliers.”

The University of Central Lancashire (Preston) will be holding three pilot workshops on Tuesday 7th May and Wednesday 8th May 2013, which will cover cloud computing, digital marketing, video conferencing, collaborative working and customer management. The first seminars will then take place in June 2013 and a Business Support Centre will open in the summer on Lancashire Business Park (Leyland).

It’s important to stress that nearly all of the related Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) schemes will be conducting similar efforts to encourage businesses to get the most out of the new connectivity.

    Similar events happening in Devon & Somerset.

    Yes there is a similar thing happening In Somerset BUT not much else and the Connecting Devon & Somerset web site hardly ever updates anything or tell you how the roll out is progressing, as far as I know they haven’t even started yet or where the roll out will begin.

      Plan includes 2 economic (Bridgwater and East of Exeter) and 2 social (Torridge and West Somerset) priority areas which have been scheduled at the front end of the plan.

    Somerset how did you get this Information as it is very thin on the ground and like I said the connecting Devon & Somerset site tells you nothing about where the surveys are being done. Also when you say west Somerset does that Include that Include Cannington and why BDUK money being used for Bridgwater I thought that was being done as part of the Commercial Rollout.
