EuropaSat is giving UK residents and businesses the chance to save money when signing up for satellite broadband.

As reported by ISPreview.co.uk, customers who subscribe to Tooway or SES-based packages are entitled to a 50 per cent discount for three months.

Customers in England, Wales and Ireland are entitled to half-price broadband on Tooway deals, while those in Scotland must sign up for an SES package.

Customers are required to use the 'Gen14pr' promotion code when signing up in order to take advantage of the deal.

EuropaSat's broadband packages are available from an initial price of £9.99 per month, rising to £19.99 after three months.

However, new customers also need to pay around £500 for the necessary hardware and installation, allowing them to receive a satellite broadband signal.

The service is designed for homes and businesses in remote parts of the UK - those that are not connected to the fixed broadband network.

For premises in the most rural locations, satellite broadband may represent the best option for accessing faster download and upload speeds.

Fibre broadband is being rolled out across the UK, with the government targeting coverage of 99 per cent by 2018.

But this will still leave many premises without access to super-fast broadband, and little prospect of ever receiving a direct link to the network.

This is because it costs too much money for infrastructure providers to link up individual properties situated some distance from the nearest telephone exchange.

EuropaSat says that, by installing a small dish on the outside of a property and a set-top box inside, it can offer fast broadband in any location.

"You can share the service just as you would with wired broadband, using a conventional network or wirelessly," the firm notes.

"This gives your computer or smartphone access to all the latest internet services and feature-rich content."
