A community group is bringing state of the art hyperfast broadband to Lawkland, Eldroth, Wharfe, Feizor and Austwick (LEWFA). Public meetings have received great support. At the end of May 2016 we started digging to instal the trunking through the area. Over the next year, the network will start to be connected to households in the LEWFA area. We are using the B4RN network which is already in over 1300 properties and more than 30 parishes between Lancaster and Lawkland.
The Proposed route
Fibre Trunk lines have been plotted from the Clapham B4RN project into Lawkland and Austwick parishes. Main trunks will lead off through the community with spurs connecting to individual or groups of properties. The route (May 2016) is subject to change but will broadly follow this plan. Pink and Blue lines indicate the main trunk, yellow are spurs. Tap the picture to enlarge
Working with B4RN
The LEWFA Hyperfast planning group is working with Broadband for the Rural North – B4RN. An Industrial and Provident Society (co-op) B4RN is recognised as a truly fast service with completely fibre provision, “future proof” for at least 50 years, with upload and download speeds of 1000mb with unlimited usage – that’s not just superfast, it’s HYPERFAST ! more details about B4RN from here.
