BT is aiming to provide one Kent village with super-fast broadband internet services in the near future, after teaming up with its parish council.

Broadband speeds as fast as 40Mb may be offered to homeowners and firms based in Iwade by the autumn of this year, with funding from Kent County Council supporting the project.

BT's Openreach Chief Executive Officer Steve Robertson commented that two-thirds of the UK's properties might be able to access fibre broadband services from BT by the year 2015.

He added: "Our investment is one of the biggest commercial investments in fibre in the world and we are prepared to invest further if others are prepared to work with us."

In total, 1,350 premises based in Iwade are going to be offered broadband by BT following the formation of the company's partnership with the village's parish council.

Earlier this week, BT also confirmed that it has joined forces with TalkTalk to request a judicial review relating to the Digital Economy Act.
