Consumers living in rural areas can access high-speed broadband services via satellite technology, one internet service provider has claimed.

Commenting after the government pushed back the timescale for introducing nationwide 2Mb broadband until 2015, Tariam Managing Director Andrew Walwyn explained that alternatives exist for customers based in the countryside.

He explained that satellite broadband can be provided to all customers in the UK, irrespective of their location – even those who are based in notorious 'not-spots'.

"We have a dedicated and certified installer network that's now completely nationwide, ready to install and deliver broadband anywhere in the UK, today," Mr Walwyn said.

He noted that the set-up costs can quickly be recouped through savings once the connection is up and running.

Customers can take advantage of e-commerce and cheaper online payment options via their "free, reliable, and fast broadband connection", Mr Walwyn said.

Following last summer's Digital Britain report, the Labour government set a 2012 deadline for the near-universal supply of 2Mb broadband services in the UK.
