Avonline plc today announced a new limited period offer on its standard Tooway home user Satellite Broadband service. The offer means that customers can now pay just £299 to purchase the hardware and have it installed. Customers then have a choice of monthly service options starting from £49.99. This brand new offer is unique in the market and will bring satellite broadband to a much wider community of users. With other similar satellite broadband solutions costing twice as much, at around £700, this special offer 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, has been attracting customers throughout the UK since its launch in July 2009. Tooway's plug and play connectivity, along with its fast download and upload speeds, 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 money saving 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 new offer, Craig Roberts, Avonline’s Broadband Services Manager said, "Customers in areas where they have an unreliable or slow broadband service, or no service at all, are telling us that they love the Tooway product and are excited about having a reliable, fast broadband service. Up until now, unfortunately, many potential customers have told us that they cannot afford the initial hardware and installation fee, so I’m really pleased that we are now able to offer them an affordable way to get online today".
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.
