Avonline plc today announced that it has extended its limited period offer on its standard Tooway home user Satellite Broadband service. The offer, that allows customers to pay just £175 to get the hardware installed, followed by 3 more quarterly payments of £175, has proven to be so popular that the company has decided to extend it for a further period up until Easter. The instalment offer is unique in the market and is aimed at helping more people afford satellite broadband by reducing the biggest barrier to wide-scale take-up - the large upfront hardware and install charge.
Avonline's best selling product, with a market leading 3.6Mbps download and 384Kbps upload from about £1 per day, was already attracting a significant number of new customers since its launch in July 2009. The main features include lower cost hardware and installation than previously available, together with Tooway's plug and play connectivity, which make the service ideal for the consumer market. There are 4 packages available, all providing the same download and upload speeds but with varying levels of data usage. In addition, the Tooway service has the ability to deliver voice over satellite telephony services (VoIP) and now has the added value option of receiving Freesat High Definition digital television services from the same satellite dish.
Speaking about the extended offer, Craig Roberts, Avonline's Broadband Services Manager said " We’ve have seen a 25% increase in enquiries and a 100% increase in orders of our Tooway product since we announced the special offer at the beginning of the month. Customers are telling us that allowing them to spread the hardware and install costs over 12 months makes broadband in areas where they have an unreliable or slow service, or no service at all, more affordable. For this reason we have decided to extend the deal until Easter so that more customers have the opportunity to take advantage of this unique offer".
Avonline's satellite broadband installation consists of a small satellite dish and a modem connected to the PC via the Ethernet, giving customers immediate broadband access following a simple installation. Over 1 million customers already get their broadband via satellite technology.
