Rural Broadband is increasingly in the news these days and there have been several features on TV recently. The BBC Sunday Politics Show, broadcast on 24th June 2012 had a lengthy item followed by a studio debate featuring Andrew Fleck from neighbouring project, Fibre GarDen Broadband.

The report featured shots from B4RN fibre digging too and also the “Rich Internet Shoppers” sound bite from Hyndburn Labour MP, Graham Jones. Anything that raises the profile of rural Broadband has to be a good thing.

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!
