The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Warwickshire-based RMS Broadband is to launch a one-way broadband-via-satellite service next week based on Eutelsat's Opensky product.

The service - which is backed by private finance - is aimed at the residential and SME sectors in areas currently not served by ADSL or cable broadband services.

Prices start at around £30 a month for subscription while the kit and installation costs around £250. All prices are exclusive of VAT.

The company believes it can sign up at least 50 new customers a month. On that basis, it would be making a "healthy profit", said technical director, Jon Lobb.

The RMS Broadband service is due to be launched on March 14.

Last month Brighton-based Isonetric Broadband Ltd ceased trading. A meeting is being held today of shareholders and creditors concerning the future of the operation. ®
