B4RN & Emtelle Show-Tell Day #6

Emtelle show tell day 6


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.

The event, as before, will be jointly hosted by B4RN and Emtelle in Lancaster and the surrounding B4RN area. The day will focus on sharing experiences and demonstrating installation techniques for rural fibre to the home/broadband initiatives.

Topics to be covered include:-

  • Customer Engagement
  • Product Selection
  • Network Planning
  • Content
  • 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!

Stories from out in the field from our very happy customers

One residential customer in Over Kellet used to know whether it was worth firing up her computer by looking out of her front window to see what the weather was doing with her telephone line.

It has allowed us to improve our farm business through the implementation of Wi-Fi heat detection ankle bands on our herd, and thus improving our business productivity.

OMG it is amazing! I don’t want to go back to London, which was faster than here, but not now! Just to say a BIG THANK YOU to all you guys, what a great thing you are doing. I’m shocked not everyone is signing up!
Customer in Norfolk
After lambing 1300 ewes a good film is what I want to watch and because we have B4RN that is no problem. Just enables me and my family to get on.
