Tiscali has launched a one-way broadband satellite service in Italy.

The service - being provided using EutelSat's Opensky platform - costs from €24.95 (£17.70) a month and is aimed that those people who can't readily access ADSL or cable services.

The TiscaliSat service comes in two flavours. TiscaliSat Light costs €24.95 a month with an up-front activation cost of €19.99.

TiscaliSat Top costs €39.95 a month with an activation fee of €29.99.

Both services give a maximum download speed of 2Mbps, with the up-stream speed dictated by the kind dial-up connection used by the punter.

In May, Tiscali announced that it had teamed up with Eutelsat to provide a one-way broadband satellite service throughout 15 countries in Europe.

At the time, the ISP said the service would begin to be rolled out in Europe from the summer.

No one at Tiscali was available to say when the service might be rolled out to the UK.

Earlier this year, Tiscali shelved plans to roll-out a two-way broadband satellite service after a pilot showed the service was too costly for users. ®
