Communications firm Eutelsat has revealed its Tooway satellite broadband platform is to be used as part of a scheme to boost internet connectivity in Ireland.

Under the plans, subsidiary firm Satellite Broadband Ireland is to deliver the service to up to five per cent of the 223,000 buildings targeted for internet improvements across rural parts of Ireland.

Those who qualify for the connections will then be able to receive the satellite broadband service, which will offer connection speeds of around 3.6Mb, for €19.99 (£17.87) a month.

Arduino Patacchini, the Multimedia Director of Eutelsat, said: "The choice of Tooway and our partner Satellite Broadband Ireland to deliver broadband services to the most rural homes and businesses in Ireland underlines the core role satellites are actively playing in building an inclusive digital environment across Europe."

Based in Paris, Eutelsat offers access to its satellite broadband to bodies based in over 150 countries.
