Get up to speed on Superfast Broadband

BUSINESS leaders can find out more about superfast broadband and how to give their company a boost at a free breakfast event run by Tendring District Council (TDC).

The Spring Breakfast Event from the council’s regeneration team will see a speaker from the Superfast Essex team talk about the roll-out in Tendring, while the BEST Growth Hub will talk about what support is available to businesses.

Superfast Essex will also give information about the Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme, offering up to £2,500 of funding to businesses looking to access full fibre internet.

Taking place on May 23 from 8-10.30am, free bacon rolls and pastries will be on offer to those who attend.

The event takes place at the Royal Hotel, on Marine Parade East, Clacton. It had originally been scheduled for Dovercourt, but has had to be moved as the venue was needed as a polling station.

Tom Gardiner, Head of Regeneration at TDC, encouraged firms to come along. “These events are a great way of finding out how to boost your business, and also build links with other firms across Tendring,” Mr Gardiner said. “I’d therefore urge businessmen and women to take part and see how their companies could grow as a result.”
