Future Proofing
Rural Communities

Every B4RN customer has gigabit (1,000Mbps) download and upload speeds with our full fibre broadband.

Each property has a dedicated fibre running to it. This means we can deliver broadband speeds which are among the fastest in the country and you can connect as many devices as you like.

Broadband speed along fibre is only limited by the technology at either end, which can be easily upgraded – meaning you’ll be ready for whatever the internet has to offer for decades to come.

Connecting the
Whole Community

When we build with a community, we don’t just pick the easy connections. We build to every property that wants a connection, so long as we can get the relevant permission.

B4RN also supports community hubs – we provide free service to Primary Schools and other community assets, including some Village Halls and Places of Worship.

Connecting to a Resilient
& Stable Network

B4RN understands the challenges of building full fibre broadband in rural areas – we’ve been doing it since 2012. Our network is buried underground – we don’t use telegraph poles. This is harder to do (and costs us more) but it has a lower visual impact and makes our network resilient, meaning you’re more likely to stay online during high winds and storms.

Community Benefit Society

As a Community Benefit Society, we set our Service Charges at a level which cover our costs and enables us to operate as a sustainable business. Any surplus we make beyond this must be invested back into B4RN communities.

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!
