The Broadband East Riding Business Support Programme has encouraged local business growth by helping over 600 local businesses to learn about, and exploit, the opportunities that digital technologies and high-speed broadband can offer.

The programme delivered some topical and extremely popular workshops aimed at helping small and medium sized enterprises to market their business more broadly online and included Social Media Basics for Business, Facebook for Business, Search Engine Optimisation as well as Online Video Marketing.

The formal Broadband East Riding Business Support programme, which was funded by the European Regional Development fund, has now drawn to a close, however, the East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Business Support team are on hand to help with information and advice for existing and start-up businesses; FREE to East Riding resident companies!

Case Study  

Bridlington Businessman Was Going Nowhere Quick Until Superfast Fibre Broadband Arrived

IT consultant Richard Hale has saved thousands on fuel bills and slashed his annual commute by more than 20,000 miles – thanks to the Broadband East Riding programme.

Self-employed Richard said existing broadband speeds to his home in Bridlington were so slow he was forced to make a 140 mile commute to offices in York and Leeds to connect with clients.

But the arrival of superfast broadband as part of the Broadband East Riding roll-out has enabled him to stay put, ditch his long commute and work from the family home, serving customers around the globe.
