Satellite broadband can get you online even if you're in area not covered by the UK's telephone or fibre broadband network. What's more, satellite broadband in the UK is now much cheaper and faster than it used to be and doesn't require a huge outlay for a satellite dish and installation.
What speeds can I expect with satellite broadband?
UK satellite internet supplier Tooway's premium service offers a maximum connection speed of up to 20Mpbs. Choose rival provider Hybeam and you can expect a headline connection speed of 15Mbps.
These kind of connection speeds aren't even close to the super-fast broadband service you get with fibre from the likes of Virgin Media or BT. But they compare favourably with standard ADSL and mobile broadband.
Can I get satellite broadband?
The best thing about satellite broadband is that you can get it almost anywhere. Provided you're in a country in which the satellite broadband provider operates, it will not matter how remote your location.
This is because a broadband connection is delivered via a satellite dish and does not depend on the reach of the UK's telephone exchanges nor the fibre, 3G or 4G networks.
How much does satellite broadband cost?
Not too long ago, satellite broadband probably deserved its reputation as prohibitively expensive. However, as providers have grown their customer base, economies of scale have meant that prices have come down.
Tooway's entry-level satellite broadband product is now priced almost in line with ADSL broadband. Hybeam's equivalent service is £24 per month.
A fairly substantial outlay for the satellite dish applies, of course. But if you choose the top-end products can be as little as £50. And with set-up now free with many satellite broadband providers, the cost has come down significantly.
What about download limits?
Unlimited download allowances are commonplace with fibre and ADSL broadband. But they're much rarer with satellite internet. That said, you can still find products with generous allowances of 40GB per month.
LGA: State should offer financial help to pay for fast broadband.
