The primary purpose of B4RN is to provide Gigabit broadband to the rural properties as they are seriously affected at present. We use “soft dig” over farmland and other private land with the owners’ wayleave permission to bury the fibre tubes and cables. However, experience in the North of England suggests more densely populated towns and villages might also wish to join the B4RN East Anglia network. B4RN can discuss possibilities particularly if a group of residents can offer cable routes via their back gardens etc.
North of England
Our coverage area in the North of England is detailed on the Coverage Area page of our main site.
B4RN is extending its core network from Telehouse North in London's Docklands (where B4RN has an existing node) some 218Km through East Anglia, along the A143 to Lowestoft, so that the parishes in Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex can be connected. B4RN can potentially provide its network to any parish in Norfolk, North and West Suffolk, South East Cambridgeshire and West Essex if there is sufficient support from the local residents.
