Our broadband programme

Supporting better broadband

We are working with the Government’s Building Digital UK (BDUK) team to improve access to faster broadband services.

To date, this work has already brought superfast broadband to over 138,000 homes and businesses, who would otherwise have been left with no, or slow broadband. This means that over 95% of properties across Kent and Medway can now access a superfast broadband service of at least 24mbps.

Kent Rural Fibre Broadband Project

We are working with BDUK and Openreach to connect an additional 5,000 rural homes and businesses with no or slow broadband with gigabit capable, fibre-to-the-premise broadband.

Use our postcode checker to see if your area may benefit from our project.

Kent Top-Up Voucher Scheme

We have launched a new Kent Top-Up Voucher to help those in the hardest-to-connect locations get faster broadband.

From September 2020 residents in Kent will be able to claim up to £5,500 per residence and up to £3,500 per business. The Kent Top Up scheme can only be used in conjunction with the Rural Gigabit Voucher Scheme and will give both residential and businesses a combined value of up to £7,000 available per eligible premises.
