Avanti Communications Group plc (“Avanti”), a leading provider of satellite data communications services in Europe, the Middle East and Africa has now launched full scale national marketing of a government funded satellite broadband scheme in the UK.

Customers nationwide who are beyond the reach of good terrestrial service can now receive up to 30Mb satellite broadband, installed for free by Avanti service providers.

The scheme was piloted in January, and Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) has this week begun the despatch of letters to the 300,000 homes eligible for the scheme. These homes can register with their county council for a voucher which will give them a free installation. Households will then only pay for monthly service charges, which begin at £29.95 per month.

Rural consumers have been waiting a long time for equal treatment in government funded of broadband. This scheme now means that no-one in Britain needs to pay anything upfront to receive a World Class satellite broadband service, all using pioneering British technology.”

Commenting, David Williams, Chief Executive Operator of Avanti
