Residents in the rural village of Barham, Kent now have access to super-fast broadband services thank to wireless internet provider VFast.

The company has installed services offering connection speeds of up to 25Mb in the village through a central fibre set-up funded by Kent County Council (KCC), which is then delivered to homes and businesses using WiMax technology.

Rebecca Brown, Managing Director of VFast Internet, said the company was "very happy" to deliver the solution to the village, which is near Canterbury.

"Customers can now enjoy superfast broadband at speeds unheard of in rural areas, and in fact many people in urban areas struggle to see such speeds," she explained.

"The KCC funding has enabled us to upgrade the current VFast network in Barham which serves around 170 residential subscribers."

As well as working in Barham, VFast is also hoping to upgrade equipment in Ashford so customers in the town can participate in a trial of a service offering 60Mb services.
