To qualify the customer must be located in one of the qualifying cities and meet the following criteria:

• Less than 250 employees
• Turnover is less than £40m
• Received less than £165,000 from any public funded scheme in the last 3 financial years

Commenting on the scheme, Matt Donaldson, Sales Director of Channel Telecom said, “We know that when customers upgrade to Ethernet, they soon take additional ‘cloud’ based services and apps because of the connectivity is resilient and reliable. This is an excellent opportunity for those in the channel to upsell their customers with an unbeatable and time limited offer on installation costs. We would very much like to hear from prospective partner who can champion Ethernet in these cities.”
