1GB FTTH Broadband connection in the UK

 Project: 1GB FTTH Broadband connection to subscribers

Location: Kendal, Cumbria, United Kingdom (UK)

Company: Broadband for the Rural North Ltd (B4RN)


Partnering with operator Broadband for the Rural North Ltd (B4RN), Tratos has brought super-fast connectivity to an isolated parish in Cumbria, United Kingdom.

The installation saw a large section (2,000m) of 288 core Tratos Fibre Optic Cable 7.2mm OD round put in place at Old Hutton near Kendal. The team completed the installation in a morning, having previously carried out cable trenching. First connections as part of the upgrade were quickly installed with further phases of connection scheduled to be delivered as part of the ongoing project.

To date B4RN has more than 3,270 connected properties and its 1GB per second standard service is hundreds of times faster than its average competitor.

Tratos has long campaigned to remove the dominance of old copper networks, in favour of FTTH Broadband,  to allow access for other, more nimble suppliers in the UK.
