Redbridge businesses could get high-speed internet through Boris Johnson-led scheme

Small businesses in Redbridge can now apply to a Mayor of London-led scheme to help get high speed internet connections.

The first phase of the scheme has been rolled out in Redbridge – and five other London boroughs – but will open up to the rest of the capital in the spring.

Businesses in the borough can apply for a voucher worth up to £3,000 to help them with the set up cost of high speed internet connections.

The Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: “Today’s markets are more competitive than ever and it is essential London’s businesses are at the forefront, driving our economy forward, with cutting-edge technology at their fingertips.

“I am delighted this scheme will provide practical support that will enable our entrepreneurs in Redbridge to become super connected.”
