Eutelsat Communications has announced major improvements to its Tooway satellite service that it says will enhance the speed and affordability of consumer satellite broadband across Europe and the Mediterranean Basin. Offering higher bitrates, increased consumption profiles and lower entry costs, the latest generation of Tooway broadband services is now available and is being progressively commercialised by distributors integrating the new offers into their service portfolio.
The Tooway portfolio of services delivered via Eutelsat’s KA-SAT High Throughput Satellite now offers download speeds of up to 18 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 6Mbps, with consumption profiles of up to 50 Gigabytes per month. This means that the top of the range consumer package has been boosted to 18Mbps from 10Mbps, with high volume allowances across the range, while pricing levels remain the same. A new entry level package is also being launched, offering download speeds of up to 2Mbps and upload speeds of up to 1Mbps.
