Affordable Satellite Broadband Offered In New Low-Cost Equipment Rental Scheme

New rental scheme offered by Satellite Internet gives customers the chance to rent equipment from only £12.50 per month

6 March 2014 A British Internet Service Provider, Satellite Internet, has launched a new low-cost equipment rental scheme, offering new customers a chance to connect to satellite broadband in an affordable way. The rental scheme, which comes on a two-year minimum contract at only £12.50 a month, removes any upfront equipment charges, meaning it has never been easier for customers to get connected via satellite.

Satellite Internet is a specialist satellite ISP serving homes and businesses in rural and hard-to-reach areas all over the UK and Eire. Based in London, while offering a national installation service, Satellite Internet has extensive experience in low-cost satellite broadband for consumers and SMEs and can offer download speeds of up to 20Mbps.

"With our new equipment rental scheme we hope to make satellite broadband more accessible to new customers and get more of the UK connected," commented Mike Locke, Managing Director of Satellite Internet. "We pride ourselves on offering a fast and reliable service harnessing the power of Astra Connect from SES Broadband Services."

The terminal equipment set comes complete with a Dish with Az/El mount, Transceiver, Satmodem, 30m RF cable between Transceiver and Satmodem, Ethernet cable to connect to a computer or router, 240v mains power supply and CD documentation.

As well as the £12.50 per month terminal equipment rental cost, customers will also be able to choose which service package to subscribe to, with prices offered from only £9.95 per month. Standard activation and installation costs will also apply.

"Our service can be used anywhere in the UK, as long as the user can have a dish installed to their property with a clear view of the southern sky in much the same way as you would expect with TV services. It's a great alternative solution for those who live in remote locations where terrestrial broadband isn't a viable option," concluded Locke. "Our new, affordable rental scheme is another step towards finally breaking down the digital divide which still very much exists in the country."

Satellite Internet is backed by SES Broadband Services, a 100% owned affiliate of Europe's leading satellite operator SES, and boasts flexible and fast installation options, a UK Fixed IP address and TV, WiFi and VOIP options.

As well as renting, new customers can opt to buy their equipment for £269 for 30 days or £229 for a one-year contract.
