The purpose of the project is to take a new approach to the ownership, financial and deployment models used traditionally, and still proposed by, telecommunications companies. These models invariably leave rural areas outside of the scope of economic viability for the telecoms companies, and have helped to create the Digital Divide between rural and urban Britain. Check the maps of the phases to see if you live in the area we are working in, there are already quite a few properties included in the design just outside the mapping area, so do keep checking.

Getting Involved

Information for communities wishing to join in the project

Everyone can get involved!

This network is being built by the community, for the community. This is a community-wide, co-operative, and collaborative initiative to do the job once, and do it correctly without costly stop gap solutions in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the Forest of Bowland and the Lune Valley.

The Forest of Bowland AONB helped us launch this project, and we are very grateful for their support. We are also proud to have TNP, Emtelle, Geo, Vitesse, Sumitomo, HellermanTyton and Fujikura amongst our partners/suppliers and working together we are building a network of people, businesses and futureproof infrastructure.
