Everywhere Broadband - which planned to offer high speed Net access to punters who can't get DSL or cable - has ditched plans to roll out a satellite broadband service in the UK. The company - which was to team up with Eutelsat to offer a service with speeds up to 1.5Mbs for £19.95 a month - was due to launch the service at an event next week.

However, that press conference has now been cancelled and there are no plans for an alternative date for the event. No-one from Everywhere Broadband was available for comment at the time of writing.

The Register understands that a recent decision by BT to speed up the roll-out of its ADSL service to almost all the UK by summer 2005 could be one of the reasons behind Everywhere Broadband's decision not to go ahead with the commercial launch of the service. ®
