Kent to Get High Speed WiMax Class Network

Posted: 01st Apr, 2008 By: MarkJ
Kent Based Orbital Net Limited has announced plans to roll out a WiMax broadband wireless class network to Folkestone in Kent using the 8Ghz and 5.4Ghz radio spectrum:

After success in Ashford, Maidstone, Canterbury and Thanet, Folkestone was the next logical step. With the current regeneration and new Businesses moving to the area, there is a demand for reliable symmetrical high speed connectivity.

Since Orbital Purchased the Telabria Network in 2006, Orbital has integrated its original wireless network and the acquisition into one giant wireless network spanning most of Kent.

Services to be offered in Folkestone will be Business packages starting from 10Mbit per second (Mbps) upwards. Residential users will also be able to take advantage of the new backbone through Vfast Ltd who have a deal with Orbital for backhaul and acquired the former SoBroadband network. Residential services range from 2Mbps to 10Mbps and start at £24.99 per month.
