Speeding up South Yorkshire with SFSY Connectivity Vouchers
Ultrafast Internet connectivity can make a major difference for SMEs, hugely speeding up work and cutting down on wasted time. Right now, many companies are held back by slower connectivity than they need, while being unable to justify the cost of upgrading.
In order to help out companies across South Yorkshire, local organisation SFSY have launched an all-new voucher scheme which completely halves the cost of adopting new connectivity, with funding available up to £2500, along with a second scheme that makes it cheaper than ever to invest in new business technology, from computers and equipment to software licenses and more.
As an independent ISP, we at Exa Networks are incredibly excited about the potential that the SFSY voucher scheme has for SMEs across South Yorkshire - we've put together this page to explain the programme and let you know how you can benefit. If you're interested in the voucher scheme, or have any questions about how it can affect you, don't hesitate to get in touch with the Exa team at 0345 145 1234!
If you're interested in upgrading your connectivity, we'd recommend taking a look around this site to discover future-proofed connectivity with DarkLight. Available in Sheffield, Doncaster & Rotherham, DarkLight provides ultrafast, adjustable speeds at a price point typically significantly lower than leased lines.

Using SFSY Connectivity & Innovation Vouchers
As we've mentioned, there's two types of voucher available from Superfast South Yorkshire. Both of them are available to SMEs across the area, and are designed to save local businesses a huge amount of money:
Connectivity Voucher: Built for businesses who want to upgrade their Internet performance, connectivity vouchers halve the cost of adopting connectivity, with vouchers ranging from £500 to £2500. Applicants are required to at least double their current connectivity speed and receive a download speed of at least 30 Mbps - absolutely no problem if you choose our ultrafast DarkLight connectivity.
Innovation Voucher: With a far wider scope than the connectivity vouchers, innovation vouchers give SMEs up to £12499.50 towards the cost of new technology that can benefit their business - whether that's new products, CRMs, Cloud solutions or a whole lot more.
Applying for SFSY Vouchers
When you apply for a SFSY voucher, whether it's for connectivity or innovation, you'll need to fill in and send a form with details on the services you're interested in receiving for your business - available from the SFSY website.
