Helping rural communities in England get brilliant connectivity is B4RN’s raison d’etre.

So, when opportunity arose to share with the rest of the world how it can be done, one of B4RN’s founders stepped up.

Chris Conder took part in a global webinar in September as the Internet Society launched a report on how to fund community-led connectivity initiatives.

This write up by APC (Association for Progressive Communications) shows how community connectivity providers can be the missing piece to bridge the digital divide.

Meanwhile, the full report can be found here and a recording of the webinar can be found here.

We juggle two jobs from home, and it’s just been a game-changer. Just sign up! It’s the best internet service I’ve ever received, and I’ve moved a thousand times!

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.
Heather Whalley, Farmer
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.
