Kent council calls users to demand faster broadband

Broadband users in Kent are being urged by Kent County Council to register their wish for a faster service.

The council said that public funding and internet providers' investment could lead to 90% of Kent's properties having super-fast broadband by 2015.

It has launched the Make Kent Quicker Campaign and is investing £10m, with £9.87m coming from central government.

The council said broadband providers needed evidence of demand before they would improve the speed of the network.

Councillor Kevin Lynes said: "The greater the demand, the more broadband providers will be prepared to invest in Kent.

"I want to encourage anyone who does not have broadband, or who wants better broadband, to register with us and say they want better broadband."
