As you may be aware Oldham Council has recently invested £369,000 into a Greater Manchester scheme run in partnership with BT towards the roll out of super-fast broadband to parts of the Borough which wouldn’t otherwise have benefited.
Just check if your property is able to receive the new service by getting in touch with your existing provider or go to https://www.get-digital-faster.info/check-availability to see if you can upgrade.
If you are a business in Diggle there is still an opportunity to obtain a grant of up to £3,000 to upgrade to the faster, better broadband.
A superfast internet connection makes your organisation more efficient, cheaper to run, and easier to develop. Benefits to your business as a result of faster, better broadband include:
•Growing and accessing new markets through better communication with customers and suppliers
•Increasing security through fast secure back-up of data
•Increasing productivity and improving customer service through faster upload and download speeds
Upgrading your broadband will also help to future-proof your business for the digital challenges of tomorrow – but hurry, the fund is running out and as soon as it’s gone, it’s gone.
