Northern Ireland gets satellite broadband


by David Allen

In order to allow households and businesses in rural areas to be connected to the broadband network, the Northern Ireland Communications Minister, Arlene Foster, has announced a £1.1 million plan that is sure to address this problem.

A contract to deliver a broadband for all service to Northern Ireland has been awarded to Avanti Communication Group Plc, which came through as the winner of a very competitive tendering process.

It has been estimated that once this service is up and running it will bring in revenues of around £450,000 per year from the customer subscriptions.

Avanti Communications, which is based in London, has provided similar systems in the West Midlands, and is currently in the process of rolling out a broadband outreach programme in Scotland.
