How Satellite Broadband is bridging the gap in Northern Ireland

One of the first regions within Europe to have total access to high speed internet is Northern Ireland, with much of the service being provided via Satellite Broadband.

European funding of nearly £10m has been invested in the project which is super news for those living in the area who have previously struggled to obtain any form of broadband service. OFCOM carried out research which showed that demand for broadband is not only high but on the increase. It is therefore good news that speeds in even the most rural of areas in Northern Ireland are about to be dramatically improved.

Broadband rollout and the current situation

For residents that live too far away from the local exchange, gaining access to the standard ADSL broadband has been a major problem. If you do not live within 5 miles of the exchange then not only the ADSL system but also the 3G mobile service will be out of range; your preferred option will be to opt for satellite broadband which can solve all broadband communication problems.

But how can satellite broadband help?

Satellite Broadband is definitely not the lesser choice when it comes to communication as it can provide speeds of up to 30 Mbps. Provided by satellite instead of coming through your phone line or 3G network, it offers speeds not only comparable with traditional broadband but very often in excess of.

In addition, Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) are offering grants of up to £350 to customers that will cover the installation costs. This scheme has been supported by the UK Government and will continue until December 2017. The funding will be focused on areas that have been identified as black spots in relation to broadband traditional fixed lines i.e. where normal connections would be impossible to install or ridiculously expensive.
