Service Status

B4RN relies massively on the generosity and help of landowners and farmers. There is only one way we can build an affordable network, connecting even the most rural properties, and that is with their local knowledge, assistance and free wayleave permissions.


B4RN’s wayleave agreement is a simple single page, plain English document that gives us permission to install B4RN ducts across a landowner’s property. We are very grateful for these free wayleaves as it is the only way a network of B4RN’s scale can be built by a community.

B4RN Director, Chris Carr, has spoken of the value of generous landowners to his own project in Aughton:

"We were really respectful to local landowners. We wanted to be able to go across their land, when we had no right to do so. Certainly in 2013/14 there was no reason they should understand much about B4RN or fibre. So why should they say ‘yes, we’ll let you go across for nothing and, what’s more, we’ll even put it in for you’. But in fact that’s exactly what they did. Nobody is more committed to a rural community than the local farmers – it’s where they live and work, it’s where their history and future is."

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.
