Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

Everywhere! Broadband has begun accepting registrations for its one-way broadband satellite service ahead of a full commercial launch later this year.

The service is based on Eutelsat's OpenSky technology and enables users to download data via a satellite at speeds up to 1Mbps.

Data is uploaded via a dial-up ISP.

Prices for the service start at £19.95 a month with installation costs from £99. Users are still have to pay for the cost of their dial-up ISP.

Graham Roberts, MD of Everywhere! Broadband, said: "This is the solution to the problems of providing the next generation of Internet services throughout the UK.

"It tackles the discriminating (sic) nature of broadband - if the cables don't reach your area you are stuck."

Everywhere! Broadband is expected to being actively marketing the product as a "mass market" solution at the beginning of next year.

A Hampshire-based ISP, SatDrive, is already offering a one-way satellite service for £14.99 a month. ®
