Broadband for the Rural North Strickland Roger
The world’s fastest Rural Broadband
B4RN Hyperfast 1 Gigabit Broadband is coming to Strickland Roger.
Broadband for Strickland Roger (B4SR) is a community led project to bring hyperfast broadband toStrickland Roger. B4SR proposal for the Broadband for the Rural North (B4RN) network expansion into the open countryside of Strickland Roger has been accepted by B4RN.
When a community on the edge of its coverage area wishes to be connected to B4RN, they raise investment funds to support the expansion. With the help of local volunteers and landowners viable routes are established and wayleaves agreed. The network lays small 16mm ducts in the new area either by trench or mole-ploughing. Fibre optic cable is then feed down the ducts in a process called ‘blowing’. The hyperfast 1Gigabit service is delivered by B4RN.
B4RN has reached neighbouring parishes; the B4RN network is presently being installed in Skelsmergh and Longsleddale. Currentlyover 700 B4RN 1 Gigabit Hyperfast Broadband connections are to be installed in the neighbouring parishes of Longsleddale, Fawcett Forest, Whitwell & Selside, Skelsmergh & Scalthwaiterigg, Lambrigg, Whinfell, Docker and Grayrigg.
The connection charge is £150. The service costs £30 per month (inc VAT) for unlimited uploads and downloads. The B4RN Services Charges page is here.
The capital cost of the Strickland Roger B4RN 1 Gigabit Hyperfast Network will be raised from investors and by utilisation of the Department for Digital, Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme.
In the spring19 a Parish meeting will be arranged to give everyone an opportunity to hear about how the B4RN model works and understand what is involved.
I hope you feel inspired by the idea to bring the world’s fastest Rural Broadband network to Strickland Roger. If so, and to keep momentum, please register your interest in the B4SR Scheme on the B4RN website right now here.
