Leaving Our Mark on One of the Fastest Broadband Networks in the World
Broadband 4 Rural North (B4RN), for which Rainford Solutions has recently delivered Fibre To The Home (FTTH) enclosures, offers a unique opportunity to sponsor a metre of the duct in return for having a signature put on the cord. Although the evidence is soon to be buried it is a nice gesture to contribute to the scheme where rural meets global. This is why Rainford Solutions has decided to sponsor a few metres and to sign a duct congratulating B4RN for being awarded the title of the Internet Hero 2012 by Internet Service Providers' Association (ISPA).

Our Cabinets Supporting Countryside Broadband Network
The digital divide has long been a concern amongst communities in UK. In order to tackle this problem, local residents of Lancashire set up a non-for-profit organisation B4RN, which will provide their houses with the modern fibre-optic network. We are proud to deliver our FTTH cabinet to B4RN, the first of its kind ‘Broadband for Rural North’ project.
Rainford Solutions’ first enclosure, supporting country side broadband network is already in place at the Quernmore location. Its landscape friendly design helps to keep the rural views intact while providing top performance for all housed fibre optics. ‘These fibre-only cabinets (together with the full-capacity buried ducts) are a far neater solution providing a higher reliability, future-proofed solution for generations to come. Do it once and do it correctly!’ says one of the B4RN’s team members. We are all in favour of long term solutions for keeping rural Britain connected!
