This Site


WELCOME was set up in 2005 by a local volunteer to promote the use of the internet to support local voluntary and community interests in this Parish and in neighbouring communities. Since then several groups have embraced the internet and social media to created their own web-presence. We have provided links to those sites to promote those initiatives. Of course, the job is still not yet complete! This site remains an entirely voluntary project.

  3. Fibre progressBROADBAND: Core Fibre-optics have been laid along A2. Apparently BT, Talk-Talk and Plusnet are taking orders for fibre connections. The key issue is whether your "green cabinet" has been "fibred" (FTTC - Fibre to the Cabinet). So far, it appears the furthest north of Teynham exchange that has been 'fibred' is Teynham/Barrow Green.
    PlusNet (perhaps others too) charge a premium above 'normal market rate' for those of us on the Teynham 'marginal Exchange'. Yet again, being 'rural' is more expensive and we are resigned to degraded services for more money! Give me strength!
    (b) If you live the same distance from the green cabinet as you do from the exchange, don't expect the advertised speeds - you still have a load of old copper wire to corrupt your signal!
