Anyone know anything about Satellite Broadband?

Got a friend that lives some 10miles from his phone exchange.. BT refuse to connect his house to broadband for that reason, even though he has had piss poor broadband with them in the past.. :S

So were looking at Satellite Broadband but seem to be struggling to find anything for a reasonable price.. Has anyone one used Satellite? and can recommend a provider that's not silly money to setup?

Taa

Re: Anyone know anything about Satellite Broadband?

I don't think your find one that's not expensive to setup because of all the equipment involved.

Instead of looking at satellite why not look at mobile broadband that all the mobile companies do now instead.

Zen also used to do a 256k package for people with line length issues although im not sure if they still do but there a friendly bunch of people and I have always found them very helpful in the past so it might be worth asking.

Re: Anyone know anything about Satellite Broadband?

Before our village had Broadband, a provider set a Wireless network across the entire village which worked wonders. Was called ORB (Oxford Rural Broadband).

Not sure if there's anything like that around that area is there?
