BT Suspends Satellite ISP Orders
By: MarkJ - 13 December, 2003 (10:09 AM)

BT has suspended new subscription orders for its one-way broadband satellite ISP service pending a review and possible re-launch. There's also word of an installation backlog delaying customer connections:

They spun us the same line with a very helpful customer service operative once again mentioning a backlog of orders and that installations wouldn't begin again until February, possibly not until late Feb, at the earliest.

Anyhow, one thing is for sure. Orders have been suspended. The reason, it seems, is that BT is set to make some big announcements regarding its broadband satellite service early in the New Year. At the moment it's all a bit hush-hush, so keep it under your hat.

It's not completely clear whether the item is referencing BTOpenworld's two-way service or if they mean the resold (to ISPs) wholesale one-way option. More @ The Register.
