B4YS has started to lay fibre ducting into the ground as the project gets underway with a complex run of 4km that needs to cross the M6 and a railway line. B4YS is an off-shoot from B4RN and with some £101,000 of private funding aims to bring gigabit broadband to the communities of Yealand, Silverdale and Storth.
B4RN itself is providing service to Arkholme, Abbeystead, Aughton, Capernwray, Dolphinholme, Gressingham, Newton, Docker, Littledale, Quernmore, Roeburndale, Wray, Wennington, Tatham communities already with we believe some 800 to 1000 premises connected to the network. Our map site shows someone live with B4RN in Borwick which is tantalisingly close to Yealand. The B4RN network covers a vast area with long fibre runs between premises and even when the £3 million business plan to cover some 3,206 premises is complete this will only amount to 0.5% of the households in Lancashire.
