Fibre Broadband for Faversham, Sandwich and Sheppey

BT have announced that Faversham, Sandwich and Sheppey are among 41 market towns to receive fibre broadband by Spring 2012. This technology offers download speeds of up to 40mbps (and upload of 10mbps), easily enough to access the most exciting bits of online media, although resellers may supply only at speeds of up to 5mbps - still an improvement on copper wire connections on the whole. Either way, it's generally good news, meaning that the big city connections won't get an unfair advantage over small town businesses.

See the story in ZDNet and Computer Weekly to get a bit more detail.
