Today’s Radio 4 programme featured an excellent report on our B4RN project.

Interviewees were Barry Forde, B4RN CEO, Carole Brown from Deep Clough Farm near Littledale, and parents from Cawthorne’s Endowed School, Abbeystead, Lancaster.

Carole spoke about the difficulty in running a modern business when a reliable broadband connection is not available and the parents at the school spoke about the difficulty that their children have completing homework over a dial-up connection.

You can listen to the report here.

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.

Customer Testimonial

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!
Georgiana, Dentdale
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.

It’s like going from a Ford Anglia to a jet engine!
