Default Satellite broadband

I think that the issue of satellite broadband may well have been raised before but I can't find it, so.

Can anyone tell me what they have in the way of satellite broadband? We do not have high speed phone lines and we can't even pick up a mobile phone signal in our remote, village.

I have looked at NoiSat and they seem to offer the best option, but I can't for the life of me work out exactly what to get.

Can anyone who has a satellite broadband system tell me what they ordered?

Help.

It is against the rules to provide a link. That is why I added the e-mail from the provider micso. A google search for that provider in Italy will get you started. I do not know what areas of Italy they cover but they do a good job where I am.

I had a look at that provider, but it isn't for me as I need a satellite signal. There is no phone coverage in the village where I live and the only hope is satellite.

Help

Its not against forum rules to provide a link if you are responding to a question and its relevant to the tread. So long as it doesnt appear that its your business or you are pushing it for someone ie posting it on lots of threads = Advertising.

Before giving up on terrestrial, do you have a home phone line? If so, even if traditional (actually modern/standard) ADSL isn't available, have you inquired about ISDN (and ADSL over ISDN)?

Also, have you looked into WiMax via companies such as Aria (and others)? They tend to fill in the rural gaps.

I do have a phone line. I currently use plain dial up with Alice. So slow that I can make a cuppa between page loads. We are the last village on the line so the connection is abysmal.

I'll investigate WiMax, etc today.

Had a look at WiMax. From what I can see you have to be in sight of a transmitter. No chance for me.We cannot even get a phone signal.
