Abbeystead is in full connection phase now with several people in the picturesque hamlet now lucky enough to be receiving one of the world’s fastest internet connections.

One of the latest B4RN customers is Eileen Wallbank and her family. she has kindly sent a few words to the guest blog so over to Eileen. And thanks for taking the time, these blogs are great for other people to see.

Here are my thoughts on the B4RN Broadband connection.
As a newly connected resident to the B4RN fibre optic cable internet network I am absolutely delighted with it! Previously I had to rely on a dial up connection which was extremely frustrating as it took so long and very often I never got past (or even reached) the first page of the website I was trying to connect to before it crashed and I had to go down to my daughter’s to do the essential work I need to for running our farm business eg cattle movements, internet banking, VAT returns and many more! 

Increasingly, more and more things have to be done on-line and very often purchasing on-line is a lot cheaper!
I never even tried to do things like i-player and I haven’t been on facebook for years as it was just impossible.
Now thanks to B4RN my life has changed so much – I can do my internet work in minutes (instead of hours!) which frees up my time to get on with other things  – and Skype  – here I come!
Over the last few months I have spoken to many people who wish they were connected  to B4RN – they all say it’s such a good connection –  and so much faster than the ones they are on – 70MbIt/sec or less  as opposed to up to 1000Mbit/sec from B4RN – and to make it even worse they are paying double to what B4RN are charging! They say they are SO jealous and I am very lucky to have it. I have always believed in B4RN to deliver a world class superfast fibre optic cable network connection to my home from the very first meeting I attended and I have truly not been disappointed.
I’ve waited a long time for my connection – and believe me it lives up to all my expectations 100%. I’m so happy I’ve got it at last and am enjoying every minute of using it. The B4RN team have been amazing – they are all so helpful and work so hard and I am extremely grateful to them for all their help.
Thanks again

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!
