By coming together as a community to build our own full fibre broadband
network with a 1Gbps service provided by the B4RN community for a price
of £30 per month we will be able to turn broadband in our community into
an essential utility that everybody has access to and everybody can afford.
The B4RN community broadband service
Everybody connected to our community network will get their broadband service
provided by the B4RN community. This service will be a 1Gbps symmetrical
internet connection (1000Mbps for downloading and 1000Mbps for uploading)
for a subscription of £30 per month on a 1 month rolling contract. This
speed ..........is not an average across the community it is the service that
everybody connected to the network will get all the time. The speed of
your broadband connection will not decrease at busy times, and it is not
affected by the length of the cable to your home or business.
Our community broadband will be future proof. At some point in the future
when even 1Gbps is no longer fast enough the B4RN community has already
shown that the fibre optic cables that we will use to build our network
can deliver much higher speeds. Primary schools in B4RN communities in
Lancashire have been upgraded from the standard 1Gbps connection to an
amazing 10Gbps symmetrical using the same fibre optic cables.

The B4RN computer club is run by community volunteers and is a
forum for sharing knowledge and expertise on anything to do with broadband,
networks, and computing in general. It is a form of support that is unique
amongst broadband providers. The computer club has a Facebook page and also meets
at the B4RN community offices at Melling every Friday...........
Once we are connected to the fibre network the B4RN community will be our internet
service provider (ISP) and will maintain the network. If a cable gets
cut B4RN community engineers will act quickly to find and repair the damage as
they did for the villages of Leck and Ingleton when vandals dug up
and cut one of their core ducts. Thankfully B4RN had no trouble locating
the fault and engineers then worked through the night to fix the network.

knowledgeable staff. They have their own technical teams who build and support the entire network and have
a next-day response policy for anyone with service issues, and a 24/7
response for core network faults.
