Satellite broadband company wins £400,000 contract


by David Allen

The UK based satellite broadband provider, Avanti Communications, has signed agreements with four firms to provide services worth in the region of £400,000.

These deals are with Avonline Plc, Broadbandwherever, Coview Solutions and KBR IT & Networking.

Avanti believes that these deals could highlight the possibility of satellite broadband providing services to around ten per cent of the UK population under the Digital Britain plan, such as those households located in rural areas where broadband and mobile broadband are not available.

However, before consumers rush out and sign up for satellite broadband, it should be noted that this is not the perfect solution to the problem.

Experts have compared it to the service provided by mobile broadband, which could mean that satellite broadband is fine for surfing and checking emails, but some services may not be compatible with broadband by satellite.
