Bridge Broadband - a subsidiary of Flexia plc - is on the hunt for a dozen partners to resell its two-way satellite broadband service.

It's already signed up Sussex-based Isonetric and is currently in negotiation with a handful of other companies.

Bridge Broadband - which uses the satellite service of Hughes Network Systems Europe - believes there is demand for its service especially in the vast tracts of the country not served by DSL or cable.

And while the company only launched its service last November, it claims it is well on the way to having around 1,000 subscribers by the end of May.

Said Steve Smith, co-founder and managing partner of Bridge Broadband: "We are determined to create a powerful reseller network with the right support, the right service and the right level of reward to ensure that satellite broadband will fully reach all those parts of the country outside of the reach of an ADSL connectivity solution.

Bridge Broadband's service is aimed at small- and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) with charges starting from £159 a month.
