People living in rural Britain will have to pay through the nose if they want access to broadband Internet access.

Finally announcing pricing details for its broadband satellite service, BTopenworld has stung Internet users just where it hurts the most.

BTopenworld's Business Satellite 500/1 service will allow a user to connect a single PC to the service.

This costs £69.99 a month plus a whopping one-off connection charge of £899.

The Business Satellite 500/4 service - which allows up to four PCs to be connected at one time - costs £139.99 a month with a one-off connection charge of £1,299.

The connection charges cover the purchase of the satellite dish and indoor broadband unit, plus a charge for installation.

All prices are exclusive of VAT.

At these prices, the products are very much geared towards business users - once again delivering a kick in the teeth for the 40 per cent of the population who want broadband at a cost they can afford.

The two-way satellite service is to be made available in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland and Northern Ireland later this month and should be made available to the rest of the country from April next year. ®
