For the last few months, we’ve been running a trial of Avonline’s Tooway satellite-based broadband service, on behalf of the local Broadband Advisory Group. My report on the delivery and effectiveness of that solution to date is attached, here.
In summary, the technology works and is generally effective. The logistics of the installation process were a bit of a bureaucratic nightmare and support from the reseller, Avonline, has been patchy, at best. Reliability, after a poor start, has improved notably in 2014 and throughput has, with some exceptions, been acceptably in line with the service claims.
