UK Sat ISP Concerns Over Plexenis
By: MarkJ - 20 January, 2004 (9:31 AM)

Thanks to one of our readers (nathans) for pointing out (HERE - Press Release) that Plexenis will withdraw from the British PC mass market segment by the 18/04/2004. Several UK broadband satellite ISPs use their system, which has led to some concern over what this means for related providers and customers.

We shot off a quick e-mail to CentralPOINT, which is one of the related ISPs, and got a swift reply:

Plenexis made a statement to us yesterday 19/01/04 at 16:49:

------------------------

Plenexis has taken the decision, to work with Teles AG to further develop the service and market. The effects/benefits of the new arrangements for our distributors and end users are as follows:

Massive investment in satellite capacity on existing position (no need for dish repoints).

Real product advantage - new service will combine terrestrial and satellite return paths for improved end user experience.

The product also includes offline email delivery, file fetch and delivery of certain web content.

------------------------

Central POINT see this as a positive step in providing broadband via satellite and you can be assured that we will continue to keep you updated on these developments.

We have a scheduled meeting with the Managing Director of Plenexis and will provide more information as and when we have it.


Its presently unclear what, if any, physical or economic effect this will have on customers and package service/prices. Well keep you updated.
