B4RN staff and volunteers have been active in the snowy valleys of Lancashire.

New customer Ben – who lives in Dunsop Bridge – is very happy with his new connection! Not only is he saving money, he’s getting hyperfast speed and fantastic upload capability.

Ben was on BT, paying £45 a month for 20Mbps download and 8Mbps upload. He’s now on more than 300Mbps on Wi-Fi and when he does a test on the computer with an ethernet cable he can expect more than 900Mbps symmetrical and a saving £15 a month!

This is Ben in Dunsop Bridge, just connected today to the B4RN service.

Very remote community at Dunsop Bridge.

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!

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!
