What is Tooway?

Tooway is the high speed Satellite Broadband service provided by Eutelsat Skylogic. Regions without access to fast ADSL or Fibre broadband can receive fast Internet access provided via the KA-SAT High throughput Ka-band satellite.

KA-SAT is the first European satellite designed exclusively for Internet access. Launched in 2010 into an orbital slot at 9 degrees East, the satellite provides 82 large overlapping spot beams covering the UK, Europe, Middle East and North Africa to deliver complete coverage of these regions. This means that if you have a clear view of the sky you can receive Tooway service.
