Warner raises concern over re-evaluation of gigabit vouchers 

Glide Business Sales, Marketing and Product Director James Warner has expressed concern following a decrease in the funding available through the Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme.

"The Government's announcement of a decrease in the maximum value of vouchers available for businesses to claim off the install of gigabit capable services is disappointing," he stated.
"While it is an encouraging sign that there is high demand of vouchers, the change to the maximum value of £2,500 instead of £3,000 poses a real risk to thousands of companies in need of this incentive."
Through the Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme Glide has worked to support over 600 businesses to connect to the ultrafast broadband. 

"While we echo Margot James' sentiment that the vouchers give both a practical and immediate value, our fear is that this announcement will dilute the importance of full fibre and its roll out," added Warner.
"It also puts more pressure for ISPs such as Glide to invest even more in their networks to support the ever-growing demand."
