Satellite broadband cost could reduce


by David Allen

The long awaited Digital Britain report is due out soon and within it the communications minister Lord Carter is expected to outline how the UK will meet the commitment of providing broadband for all households and businesses in the UK.

It seems that the use of mobile broadband and Wi-Fi are going to be within the plan somewhere, as will satellite broadband, a service recently announced by Avanti Communications.

The UK based satellite broadband provider currently offers an up to 2 Mbps service that can in theory be picked up anywhere in the UK, but this may not be the service that connects all of the UK to the broadband network.

Cost is a major factor, not so much the cost of the service, which can start from around £20 per month, but the cost of the equipment and installation.

However, as with many new services, more customers should mean the lowering of prices.
