Eutelsat Communications SA, a provider of fixed satellite services, has announced the introduction of a new range of Tooway packages.
According to the company, the packages deliver fast satellite-based consumer broadband speeds and unlimited data download usage. The new packages will ensure that digitally deprived homes and homeworkers in the EU can instantly access the benefits of high speed broadband, including for applications such as film downloads, heavy file uploads and video chat, the company said.
The new packages, called Tooway S, M, L and XL, will initially be available through service providers in France, Spain, Italy, Germany and the UK from February, and will offer across the board download speeds of up to 20 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 6 Mbps. The packages will be rolled-out to other European countries in the coming months. The service operates with a 77cm satellite dish and modem and is delivered by KA-SAT.
Eutelsat is also introducing an unlimited data service, called Tooway Absolute, for the first 20,000 customers across Europe. Customers subscribing to the L and XL service will also be entitled to uncapped data usage overnight, allowing video and large files to be downloaded without impacting daytime data allowances. Eutelsat is also introducing for service providers a recommended monthly rental fee for the dish and modem to simplify access to Tooway, the company added.
According to Eutelsat, its portfolio of Tooway services provides consumers and home-office workers with an always-on Internet service, which is triple-play ready with full compatibility for Direct to Home (DTH) television services and Voice over IP solutions.
Jean-Francois Fenech, General Manager of Eutelsat's Broadband Business Unit, said: "These new Tooway packages are another huge step forward in making universal high speed broadband an immediate reality for Europe. The fastest speeds and most generous data packages at the best competitive rates can be delivered in a matter of days, regardless of location. The outlook for consumers in Europe's most digitally deprived areas just got much brighter."
