UK ISP Zen Internet Named BDUK Supplier for Broadband Voucher Scheme

Monday, August 5th, 2013 (11:24 am) - Score 547

Rochdale-based Zen Internet has officially joined other ISPs to become an approved supplier for the government’s Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) based Connection Vouchers Scheme (full details), which offers grants of up to £3,000 to help businesses in 22 UK cities install a superfast broadband connection.

Most of Zen’s press release merely reiterates the details we posted last week (see link above) and again confirms that the scheme will initially only be available as part of a “market test” in Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Manchester/Salford. After this it will be finalised and hopefully rolled out to the other cities.

Gary Hough, Zen’s Regulatory Manager, said:

We are pleased to have become an approved supplier to the Broadband Delivery UK vouchers scheme market test. Fibre is the future and feedback from our customers confirms that fibre optic broadband performance transforms their Internet experience, not just by making their service faster, but by enabling them to try new applications that might previously have been out of reach. We believe that we have the strongest portfolio of Fibre Optic Broadband services in the UK, having worked with BT since the initial Fibre Optic Broadband trials.”

The ISP expects that the grants could be used to help firms connect to their business focused FTTC, FTTP, Ethernet and or Leased Line based services (provided these deliver the minimum required download speed of 30Mbps+ and also be significantly better than what the business currently uses). The scheme’s website, which also contains Zen’s details, is located here www.connectionvouchers.co.uk.
