The Broadband for the Rural North (B4RN) project has won a major industry award.

The Internet Service Providers' Association (ISPA) has given its 'Internet Hero' award to the community-led broadband initiative.

Members of the B4RN project are aiming to bring super-fast internet services to a number of remote communities in northern Lancashire.

A 1Gb fibre-optic cable is being laid between Quernmore and Abbeystead in order to bring super-fast broadband to 500 local homes and businesses.

Nicholas Lansman, ISPA Secretary General, congratulated all the winners at the ISPA Awards 2012 following "another important and fast-moving 12 months for the internet industry".

"The awards are a good measure of achievement and innovation in the past year," he claimed.
