Councils find £100K for broadband


by David Allen

Areas with poor broadband connections in Kent have been given the opportunity to find a solution to this problem, with the County Council offering grants of up to £50,000 to villages that have complained about a poor service.

The villages involved initially will be Selling, near Canterbury; Kings Hill in West Malling; and Iwade, near Sittingbourne.

However, if the budget allows, Crockham Hill, near Westerham; and Womenswold between Canterbury and Dover; could be helped in the same way.

Each Parish Council will be given access to a grant of up to £50,000 to pay for the broadband supplier’s initial costs and to help with the cost of customer installations too.

This is another example of how communities can get their own act together.

Instead of waiting for a provider to install broadband in their area, these villages can affectively jump the queue.
