The LEWFA Hyperfast Broadband project is reporting terrific support following the response from fliers that went to every house in Lawkland and Austwick Parishes in July.

Over 100 households want to connect to the B4RN network being planned by LEWFA for the five communities of Lawkland, Eldroth, Wharfe, Feizor and Austwick. B4RN – Broadband for the Rural North – is rolling out its network of hyperfast broadband of 1000mb from Lancaster into North Yorkshire. The work is paid for by the communities involved, and LEWFA reports that they have a substantial amount indicated by people keen to have better broadband in its area – enough to start the installation, but more needed to finish it.
Route planners have gathered outline permission from landowners for the ducting to cross their land. The planners expect to have a meeting with B4RN to confirm the proposed route.
Local residents would dig trenches and install the ducting, probably starting in Spring 2105 in a project designed for the community by the community.
