Consumers could make savings on their communication costs by taking up satellite broadband services, according to an expert.

Andrew Walwyn, Managing Director of satellite broadband provider Tariam, has suggested that while such services involve initial investment in hardware, people could reduce their spending in the long run.

He explained that customers who source a local installer for the hardware can get their hands on the technology for £399 including VAT. With the typical working life of the hardware being five years, the annualised cost of the kit works out at just under £80.

"I would challenge any UK household of more than two people, or indeed any family, that they'd save substantially more than that £79.80 every year just by then being able to shop online for their insurances, utilities, even their weekly shopping and clothes," he added.

Tariam is currently offering a basic satellite broadband deal at £35 a month. The deal comes with both a free satellite dish and modem.
