B4RN is a 1000Mbps synchronous service, this means it has the same upload & download speed.
It is currently in a league of its own for the level of service it provides in rural and semi-rural areas. Even some cities would struggle to compete on service and don’t come close on price.
- B4RN is delivered into your home via fibre optic cable.
- You don’t need your traditional copper telephone line to have B4RN.
- B4RN do not charge a line rental on top of their standard subscription.
- The Halton network is a collaboration between B4RN & B4RN 4 Halton.
- ‘B4RN Village’, is the programme B4RN are using to install the network in the village, using contractors and funding from the Department of Communications, Media & Sport. This program leaves a connection at the boundary of each property in the village in, what is known as, a Toby Box.
- Register your property at the Get B4RN page.
- It is the task of the homeowner to extend the ducting from the Toby Box and into their home, terminated at the property using a house kit. The homeowner can do this themselves. Or they can employ a local contractor to do this task, or parts of this task on their behalf.
If the above work is carried out in this way B4RN will pay the homeowner a one-off payment of £150 for completing the work once their connection has gone live.
- Once the connection from the Toby box into your property is complete the fibre can be blown from your local chamber into your home.
- The router can then be connected to your wall socket and you can enjoy your 1 Gigabit FTTH B4RN connection.
