Default best internet service?

i have reasonably fasts but sometimes spotty internet service through TIM. people in town suggest i try a Sky Italia satellite connection. it apparently is faster and requires a downpayment for the dish but much lower monthly costs. i'm concerned about outages during storms. does anyone have any experience with Sky internet? thanks.

I had no idea Sky Italia were doing broadband via satellite, in fact I'm convinced they're not. I know a few companies doing it but it's pretty expensive and there are usually download limits. Not for me anyway.
Is it Alice you have?

That's fastweb service.

If you're outside of the dsl coverage areas your choices are limited. Ask your neighbors what they use. The OP was most likely using a TIM dongle/Mifi device. He is likely in an area with no DSL/fibre.

these usually work fine, but you need to be connected in ULL

We have a satellite dish through Fidoka in Le Marche and usually get acceptable download speeds to be able to stream UK TV programmes

I'm afraid Fidoka doesn't work through a satellite dish
