    We’re delighted to have Tom Rigg, Chief Operating Office of B4RN, as our second keynote 🥳

    Chief Operating Officer at B4RN

    🌐 B4RN is an innovative, community-led AltNet, and they’re local to this year’s CommCon venue.

    🫶 We love B4RN because they’re passionate about accessible fast internet for rural end-users, and they’re big supporters and users of open source - much of their infrastructure is built on open source technologies.

    Tom will be covering:

    • The transition from copper to fibre
    • Creating a network from the ground up
    • Operating a dark fibre network with 400Gb low latency technologies

    We’re really looking forward to his talk and learning more about how to minimise latency, maximise efficiency and work together to build a better, more accessible web!
