An alternative technology provider for residents and businesses requiring broadband in areas where the copper infrastructure is being removed
12 April 2016 – Parabolbredband, a new Swedish satellite broadband provider, has signed an agreement with Eutelsat Broadband to offer its tooway™ residential and business satellite broadband services across the country. The high-speed satellite broadband services are ideal for consumers, businesses and those with holiday homes in areas poorly served by fixed line and mobile. Parabolbredband has also been approved as an alternative technology supplier by the Swedish telecom regulator PTS and will be added to the Telekom Guiden website (www.telekomguiden.se) as a broadband provider to areas where copper cable is being removed.
The tooway™ consumer satellite broadband services offer across the board speeds of up to 22Mbps (except entry level) and upload speeds of up to 6Mbps, making it the fastest satellite broadband service in Europe with a range of data packages to suit all requirements. The portfolio of tooway™ services provides consumers and home-office workers with an always-on Internet service, which is triple-play ready with full compatibility for Direct to Home (DTH) television services and Voice over IP solutions.
The service operates with a small (77cm) satellite dish and modem and is delivered by the KA-SAT satellite, Europe’s latest generation of high-throughput satellite, operated by Eutelsat. The satellite forms the cornerstone of a state-of-the-art communications infrastructure, which includes a sophisticated on-ground network of eight main gateways across Europe, connected to the Internet by a fibre backbone ring.
Business Broadband Services
Parabolbredband will also be offering tooway™ Business satellite broadband services designed to meet the needs of SOHO, SMB and large corporates located across Sweden. tooway™ Business offers broadband packages with a wide range of data allowances up to 200GB a month and a host of flexible B2B features including Public IP addresses, Business Hour Protection and a full array of customisable options including guaranteed bandwidth speeds. tooway™ Business is ideal for organisations based in locations where fixed line services are slow or unavailable and for businesses that need an alternative to fixed line broadband for critical applications such as disaster recovery or back-up.
Vidar Fineide, Sales and Marketing manager, at Parabolbredband, said: “With many residents and businesses suffering from poor broadband services because of ageing copper lines and inadequate mobile coverage, our satellite broadband services are ideal to solve this challenge with a range of packages to suit all needs and a national installer network.”
Julia Kyngas, Eutelsat Broadband Northern European Manager, added: “Following our successful relationship with Parabolbredband’s parent company Breiband.no AS in Norway, we are confident this combination of Eutelsat’s leading satellite broadband technology and Parabolbredband’s excellent customer and technical service will prove a popular choice for residents and businesses in Sweden that have been trapped in the Digital Divide.”
