Connect+ Launches For Everyone

B4RN has fully launched Connect+ across its gigabit full fibre broadband network.

Connect+ is a new way for people to get connected to B4RN’s gigabit full fibre broadband without having to wait for their existing provider’s deal to end.

If you’re stuck in a contract that has 12 months or less to run, you can get B4RN service for only a £5 monthly tariff until your other deal runs out. (Remember: a £150 one-off connection fee still applies.)

Once your existing provider’s contract ends, you’ll move on to B4RN’s standard tariff, most likely £30/month.

The full launch of Connect+ comes following a successful trial in our ‘B4RN Village’ projects of Halton, Levens and Caton – with more than 120 customers taking advantage so far.

B4RN CEO Michael Lee said: “We hope it will help us to get more people in a single project area connected at the same time, and ultimately it will enable us to welcome more people onto the B4RN network, more quickly.”

To apply and for full details and eligibility head to b4rn.org.uk/connectplus – remember, you must have filled out a service request at Get B4RN before applying for Connect+. Furthermore, it’s best to apply for Connect+ when you’re nearing getting connected (i.e. you’ve done your garden dig and your house kit is installed).

Example of Connect+:

The following example is based on a household on our primary £30/month tariff:

You have 7 months left on your contract with your current broadband provider. You pay them a monthly fee for broadband. With Connect+, we’ll work to connect you to our 1Gbps full fibre network (£150 one-off connection fee applies) – you’ll continue to pay your current provider while paying B4RN just £5/month. At the end of those 7 months you’ll move on to your applicable B4RN tariff, usually £30/month.

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.

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.

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.
