Making Kent Quicker programme
Kent County Council is working with the Government’s broadband agency, Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) to improve access to superfast broadband services.
To date, this work has already brought superfast broadband to over 134,000 homes and businesses, who would otherwise have been left with no, or slow broadband. This means that 95% of properties across Kent and Medway can now access a superfast broadband service of at least 24mbps.

The Government's Better Broadband Scheme
We are also administering the Government’s Better Broadband Scheme in Kent. The Government's scheme provides subsidised installation of fixed wireless and satellite broadband connectivity to properties that cannot currently access a broadband speed of at least 2mbps. There are a range of packages on offer, including options that provide speeds significantly greater than 2mbps.
