Wireless broadband

Households and businesses in rural Kent can now take advantage of super-fast wireless broadband services, it has been announced.

People living and working in the Medway region, which has a population of around a quarter of a million, can use the new Medwave service to access 40Mb broadband speeds.

The broadband provider is delivering symmetric super-fast broadband services from £19.95 per month, plus a £99 installation fee.

Medwave's Steve Howard told the Huffington Post that Wi-Fi subscribers need to fix an antenna onto the roof of their home or business premises, which is then wired inside the property.

"This then connects to either an individual computer, or to the home Wi-Fi," he explained.

"Network speeds compare favourably with 'real world' phone line speeds of around 30-40Mb."

Mr Howard said the service may not be for everyone, but for some people in the countryside, it is the only option for high-speed broadband.
