Eutelsat Communications, a world-leading provider of satellite communications, made a recent announcement that the company will provide the fastest satellite-based consumer broadband speeds in the United Kingdom. With this new development, Eutelsat will be releasing a new series of simpler, Tooway satellite broadband packages with unlimited data download usage day and night, slashing down the prices to make it easier for customers to pick the right one suited for their needs.
The new packages which are called Tooway S, M, L and XL, will provide approximately 3.3 million properties across the U.K., which used to have no access to broadband or services of more than 2 Mbps. Tooway will deliver download speeds of up to 20 Mbps, making it the fastest consumer satellite broadband service currently available in Europe.
Tooway operates with a small satellite dish and modem, and is provided by KA-SAT -- one of the most powerful satellites existing in Europe. The cost will range from around £20 a month to approximately 50 euros a month, depending on the package preferred by the customer. Eutelsat said that the Tooway packages will be the first ever satellite broadband service in Europe.
“We're trying to get comparable, if not better than mainstream broadband, not just on speeds but also on features and pricing, so consumers aren't disadvantaged based on where they live,” UK commercial director for Tooway Steve Petrie said in a statement.
