Operator relaunches successful programme to help small business
Vodafone has announced the relaunch of its six months’ free broadband offer for small businesses.
The offer is available on a 24-month contract to new small businesses (1-50 employees) and existing ones who are due for an upgrade. The promotion will end on April 30 2021.
A study from market research firm Byter and commissioned by Vodafone highlighted how a reliable broadband connection has been vital for small businesses. It found:
- 51 per cent of small businesses believe they are paying too much for their broadband
- 41 per cent of small business owners find their current broadband connection unreliable
- 32 per cent of small businesses believe their broadband connection isn’t fast enough
- 13 per cent of small businesses feel their current internet connection is holding their business back
Vodafone UK business director Anne Sheehan said: “While we have a clear roadmap out of lockdown, small businesses are still facing significant challenges.
“There is still huge uncertainty and money is incredibly tight for many business owners.
“That’s why I’m pleased to be able to relaunch this offer of six months’ free broadband. I hope that with one less bill to worry about, small businesses can focus on more pressing issues.”
Vodafone also launched the Shout Out for Small Businesses campaign which offers small businesses the opportunity to win a bespoke social media marketing campaign on Facebook and Instagram, potentially reaching more than a million people.
