It’s time for another Show-Tell day. These now legendary events are an opportunity to meet up with like minded folk to learn and share the knowledge of rural broadband deployment. These are great events for communities who want to learn how deploy a community based world class broadband.
The date for the seventh Show-Tell day is set for the 24th March 2015. These events have been extremely popular and have allowed valuable information to be shared. It includes 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:-

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!
