A new broadband service designed for the UK's rural communities has been launched with the help of Eurosat.

The ISP has teamed up with the Country Land and Business Association (CLA) to help bring high-speed internet connections to many of the organisation's members.

Named CLA Rural Broadband, the new satellite broadband service is aimed at those people living in remote parts of the country for whom broadband is now "vital".

Henry Aubrey-Fletcher, President of the CLA, said that while the solution may not be viable in the long term it will nonetheless be very useful for rural businesses and residents who can no longer wait for the benefits of broadband.

"As we have said time and again, unless [the] government is prepared to invest in fast rural broadband, countryside businesses will continue to lose out to their urban rivals," he commented.

The new service was officially launched earlier this month at the Badminton Horse Trials in Gloucestershire.
