People using satellite broadband

Businesses and residents living in rural areas will soon have another option for receiving satellite broadband services.

Apogee Internet, which is based in Scotland, has announced plans to launch a 10Mb satellite broadband service in the UK.

The firm has agreed a distribution deal with SES Astra for the use of its upgraded ASTRA2Connect spacecraft, reports

Rustyice Solutions, the parent company of Apogee Internet, said the service would appeal to customers who have no access to - nor prospect of receiving - fixed line broadband services.

Paula Livingstone, Managing Director of the firm, said she was "extremely pleased" with the new service.

"This strategic partnership will further enhance our market position whilst enabling us to offer our customers a complete connectivity solution wherever they may be in the UK," she stated.

"As the network develops and the services it carries become increasingly fundamental to both residential and business customers, this is an important element of our longer term strategy."

Last week, BeyonDSL launched a new range of satellite broadband deals to be delivered using SES's ASTRA 1N spacecraft.
