Astra confirms Eurosat for UK bband push

Satellite operator Astra is linking with one of Britains oldest-established sat-equipment distributors, Eurosat, to launch its Astra2Connect interactive broadband service in the UK.

Eurosat will market the two-way system across the UK and Northern Ireland as part of its beyondsl brand. The service promises unlimited internet access for 19.99 per month on an annual contract (for 256k) and a range of other options up to a full 2MB service for 79.99. The equipment costs 299.99 and includes dish, iLNB, cabling, satellite modem and a unique point-and-play alignment tool: a professional installation service is also available from 100.

Astra2Connect is targeted at the many thousands of homes and business where DSL or cable services may be limited or non-existent, as well as the rural and urban broadband black spots where high-speed terrestrial internet access may never be available.

Mike Chandler, Astra GBs MD said: Despite the rapid spread of terrestrial broadband, there are still some significant holes in the coverage, particularly in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Some areas will never have access to a high-speed terrestrial connection. ASTRA2Connect gives everyone the chance to enjoy reliable, always-on, high-speed internet access, regardless of where they live or work.

Mike Locke, Eurosats special projects director, said: We are delighted to be able to add two-way satellite broadband to our portfolio of products and services. Thousands of households and businesses in the UK are in terrestrial broadband black spots, and its not just rural and remote areas, it also affects city locations including Greater London. These homes and businesses will be very pleased to hear that they are no longer excluded from the broadband revolution.
