What’s on offer

  • If fibre is available in your area you can choose from a wide variety of suppliers: each will offer different levels of service and price. Virgin, TalkTalk and BT have, this month, launched new business products supported by connectivity grants. These include: TalkTalk’s free upgrade to superfast connectivity; the new lightning-fast 152K products from Virgin and discounted BT Infinity. ITC, popular in Leeds and Bradford, have also launched their low cost, business product this month in Manchester and Salford. More suppliers are expected to follow (*nb: Manchester City Council offers these details as examples only, and does not endorse any specific supplier.)
  • If fibre is not available in your area you’ll find new superfast business broadband services are now available in some areas from £30 (Check out Telcom* – Northern Quarter, Cheetham Hill, Manchester and Salford city centres; AQL* – Northern Quarter; ITS* – East Manchester (M40,M11,M18): 6G* coming soon to the city centre). Alternatively businesses in multi-tenanted properties or trading estates can group together to get a shared leased line.
  • If you already have fast connectivity but need more capacity the grants will support a dedicated leased line. We have lots of suppliers already serving the city*, the most popular are Metronet, Unitel and Telcom, and new ones, such as Exponential-E are moving into the city every week

So now is a great time for your business to get a great deal on faster connectivity and use it to grow your business. Just go to and check out the off-the-shelf packages.
