B4RN volunteers, customers and the Computer Club have all helped with government research on the importance of high-speed internet.

BDUK analyst Marion Lean and dialectographer Mitch Miller visited the volunteer-led Computer Club as well as a farm in Roeburndale and the village of Barbon.

The need for the internet is already nearly universally understood, but this work led to a report (you can read it in full by clicking here) about the benefits of gigabit-capable broadband.

Meanwhile, a dialectogram – a hand-drawn doodle-like illustration encapsulating the research – was also produced. You can see that by clicking here – it is best viewed by zooming in a scrolling / panning about the page.

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!
