WarwickNet, a provider of next generation broadband solutions, has welcomed the national roll-out of the Government-backed Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme, which has seen the company distribute a large number of vouchers worth up to £3,000 to local businesses in Coventry and Warwickshire since the pilot launch in November 2017.
DCMS scheme partner Coventry Council confirmed local supplier WarwickNet has, to date, issued the majority of vouchers for its full-fibre gigabit-capable services in the region, 67 per cent of the total requests made.
James Warner, Director of Sales and Marketing at WarwickNet said: "There were no guarantees this scheme would roll-out to more areas so we're delighted it will be.
"Our partnerships with customers and knowledge of their infrastructure and business needs puts us in an ideal place to promote the value of this scheme to both them and businesses generally.
"As we invest in our own high-speed infrastructure, we're not beholden to the constraints of just the Openreach network. This is our advantage and ultimately why we are performing as efficiently and effectively as we do."
