Avonline and Avanti Expand 30Mbps Satellite Broadband UK Wide

Friday, July 1st, 2016 (1:27 pm) - Score 1,824

ISP Avoline Broadband, which sells consumer Satellite based Internet access packages via several different spacecraft, has announced the UK wide launch of their new 30Mbps superfast service via Avanti’s HYLAS platform.

At present Avonline already offers a series of packages on the Avanti network, but their best download speed is only up to 15Mbps (2Mbps upload) and rental prices tend to range from £19.95 per month for a meagre 5GB usage allowance to the staggering heights of £149.95 if you want 150GB (these days it’s easy to gobble 100GB in a month). You do at least get unlimited overnight usage on the most expensive packages.

On top of that the hardware and installation cost is £375, although this can be taken as an additional +£5 per month rental charge by choosing a 2 year contract term. However Avonline has also been helping with a number of Government pilots (here) and they’re members of the new c.£350 rural subsidy scheme (here), which effectively covers the hardware and installation cost for areas that won’t benefit from a “fibre broadband” upgrade.

In keeping with this the ISP has now announced that their new range of Avanti based and “superfast” 30Mbps packages are now being made available to people across the United Kingdom.

Mark Wynn, Avonline Managing Director, said:

“We can now provide superfast broadband using satellite technology. With 100% UK coverage, we are able to offer broadband that can match the service available to the majority of customers in urban locations. Only our new service is available everywhere in the UK, right now! From under-served local towns to neglected rural locations, we can now offer a superfast solution that can be ordered today and installed next week.

Availability of a choice of affordable, blistering fast broadband packages, based on Avanti’s leading technology, finally means that rural consumers should no longer feel second class when it comes to broadband provision.”

The press release states that a range of 30Mbps satellite broadband packages are available on the ISP’s website, although the product pages still show their old 15Mbps Avanti service and the Government subsidy link (http://avonlinebroadband.com/broadband-vouchers/) doesn’t appear to list them either. We did however discover an old Christmas offer that may reflect their new packages (here) and hopefully Avonline will clear this up in due course.

    Awesome … I’m sure those in the final few percent will be thrilled to be offered 150GB/Month for £149.95 whilst those who were lucky and already have “superfast” BDUK funded FTTC connections enjoy a far better quality of “unlimited” data allowance connection for around 1/5 of that price.

      That’s what I was thinking!
      I will just have to wait a few more years for the USO to kick in.
      Oh but that’s not looking to good either, probably going to have to pay for it and wait another few more years for any work to be carried out.
      (Took me over a year to get a DACS removed)
      Oh well perhaps I might be able to get a mobile signal before then instead!
