The Kenton Group (TKG) has launched its Broadband Enabling Technology (BET), which promises to improve signal strength.

TKG believes the solution can help reach households and businesses located further away from local telephone exchanges, helping to increase rural broadband coverage.

BET has a reach of up to 12km, meaning it has the potential to bring high-speed broadband to 160,000 homes in countryside 'not-spots'.

A further 1.5 million households suffering from low bandwidth could see the quality of their services improve as a result of the innovation, TKG stated.

John Larkin, Managing Director of TKG, described BET as "a truly innovative and unique solution", both on a domestic and international scale.

"We are very excited by what its launch means for the future of broadband and providing services to previously inaccessible customers," he stated.

The government recently launched a £20 million broadband fund designed to finance local infrastructure upgrade projects in rural areas.
