At Chipping Homes we are proud to be working with B4RN (Broadband for the Rural North Ltd) to provide residents of Fellside with fibre optic cabling, to help meet their internet needs both now, and in the future.

B4RN is a non-profit, professionally designed fibre optic broadband network run by a team of locals, with the backing of volunteers and landowners. Unlike other UK providers, B4RN is entirely fibre optic and does not use BT’s copper lines to reach customer’s properties. Launched in 2011, today B4RN has over 5000 connected properties!

Profits of B4RN can only be distributed into the community! Meaning local projects like village hall refurbishments, community group trips and protected wildlife areas can all apply for grant assistance.

Take a look at some more benefits of B4RN’s offerings.


100x faster than competitors’ averages, the 1Gbps (1000Mbps) standard service allows the whole household to use broadband at the same time, with no frustration. And if 1Gbps isn’t enough, you can upgrade to 10Gbps!

Unlimited & reliable

Unlike other broadband providers, B4RN does not limit bandwidth (how much you download/upload). Meaning you can stream as much Netflix and Amazon Prime as you please! Plus, bad weather won’t dampen your movie night as B4RN ducts are buried away from wind and water, making it super reliable.


As a one of its kind in the area, B4RN can’t be beaten on price. Even slower ‘superfast’ competitors require you to pay line rental. With B4RN you can use your connection for internet-based phone services, so you can get rid of your landline (third party call charges apply).


 And it’s not just the connection that’s fantastic! B4RN also have a helpful and experienced tech desk team ready to answer any questions.

Technical issue? No problem! The technical team offers next-day response policy for service issues and a 24/7 response to core network faults.

Get something back

B4RN are a registered supplier on the Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme. A Government fund set up to help people and businesses upgrade to “gold standard” fast and reliable broadband. With the Scheme, when you sign up to B4RN for 12-month’s, you can claim back the £150 connection fee!
