Broadband news

Over 110,000 premises across Kent have access to superfast broadband services

16 October 2015

The Making Kent Quicker Project has now brought superfast broadband services to over 110,000 premises across Kent and Medway and remains on track to finish at the end of this year.

We are now gearing up for our second broadband programme, which aims to bring superfast broadband to a total of 95% of premises across Kent and Medway by the end of 2017.

BT Openreach is completing new cabinet upgrades every week. These are made immediately available to broadband service providers (ISPs) to promote. The BT Openreach website also contains details of which properties can now order superfast broadband services via any broadband service provider using their infrastructure.

Over 85% of properties in Kent can access superfast broadband

9 October 2015

Use our postcode checker to find out what is available, or planned, for your area. The checker covers all infrastructure providers across Kent and Medway, including:

  • BT Openreach
  • Virgin Media
  • Gigaclear
  • Vfast
  • Orbital.

Don't forget, that if you can't get a service via either BT or Virgin Media, you may be able to order a faster service via either Vfast's or Callflow Solutions' wireless networks.

The broadband speed you can receive depends on your location and whether your property can access the infrastructure. Trees, tall neighbouring buildings and local landscape can affect whether you can receive a wireless service.  If this is an issue, it is likely that you will still be able to order a service from a satellite provider.
