Welcome to the website for Lingen Community Broadband C.I.C.



Lingen Community Broadband C.I.C., or LCB is a small (and still growing) internet service provider based in Lingen village, North West Herefordshire that supplies broadband services to the surrounding countryside - we are delighted to announce that we continue offer unlimited/uncapped 10MBps broadband to our subscribers for £25/month and we will continue our service to all those who rely on us.

No long contracts - our members pay monthly. Thats it. No 24 month tie in.

Run by Volunteers.. - our service is run by volunteers who care about delivering a fast reliable service to their friends and neighbours.

....except for the technical bit - The system is however administered by professional network engineers with years of experience and expertise.

The speed we offer is easily fast enough to stream movies and services such as iplayer. We don’t cap our members usage either - everybody gets the same service at the same rate - our customers are our members.

We are confident that our service is better and faster than BT or satellite for many of our subscribers, and we are certainly less frustrating to deal with. We also don’t bombard you with junk mail or confusing packages or introductory offers that are not for existing customers etc. All subscriptions stay within LCB to maintain and improve the system and constitutionally any left over funds are donated to our nominated charity - Lingen Village Hall.

More about us

                                                        Our Cadwell transmitter

Lingen Community Broadband is owned and run by local people and is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company. We supply genuine broadband, at broadband speeds via a string of wireless transmitters to addresses in this part of the world where most people are too remote to be reached by conventional broadband technology.

Despite our rural location, we use cutting edge technology to overcome the numerous obstacles that the local landscape presents. With our SYSTEM UPGRADE we have the most modern equipment available, which is small but incredibly powerful allowing for fast broadband speeds - fast enough to stream HD Video, BBC iplayer etc even in thick fog or heavy rain.

We can and do supply broadband to Lingen and surrounding areas. Areas we supply broadband to include Lingen, Birtley, Byton, Combe, Kinsham, North Shobdon and Pembridge.

System Upgrade.

2014 saw Lingen Community Broadband upgrade the current service using new technology and mains electricity to provide a reliable and significantly faster service. If you want any further information - maybe you are not getting a genuine broadband service from BT, or are exceeding your usage on a Satellite system and paying the penalty - then contact us.  In 2018 a new grant has been secured to further improve the service - with potential to offer ‘fibre’ speeds.

See the news section for progress updates.
