The 6th showtell day went exceedingly well, with favourable weather meaning we could visit a lot of sites. The photos are here on the facebook page, and you don’t have to join facebook to see them. We were joined by a visitor from the EU commission who was reporting back about what rural communities are capable of, and whether the project can be replicated across Europe.
The next showtell date will be announced soon, register your interest if you want to be included.
It’s time for another get together. A meeting of like minded folks and an opportunity to share the knowledge of rural broadband deployment.
The date of the sixth Show-Tell day is set for the 8th October 2014. These events have been extremely popular and have allowed valuable information to be shared along with field visits to see various aspects of the B4RN community fibre broadband deployment.
Topics to be covered include:-
- Customer Engagement
- Product Selection
- Network Planning
- Active Equipment
- Hands on demonstrations
- Field trip
We hope you will be able to join us for a fully interactive day! It is advised that due to the locations visited on the field trip that delegates bring suitable clothing such as a raincoat and walking boots or wellies!
Barry Forde CEO, B4RN and Steven King, Chief Commercial Officer, Emtelle
