It doesn’t seem that long ago that there were changes and improvements to satellite broadband connections throughout the UK. Well now there is yet another change to our Satellite Broadband offerings.
In the past, there was a requirement to pay for the equipment at £5 per month, postage of the equipment to your door at £19.99, standard professional installation at £49.99, account/equipment activation at a £59.99 and a monthly charge of £74.90 for the top package.
We are now able to offer UNLIMITED data connections with download speeds of up to 100Mbps (averaging at up to 75Mbps) for just £69.99 per month, with a one-off account/equipment activation charge of £49.99. This pricing includes VAT. The equipment and standard installation are now both included.
As you can see, it is now a more cost effective and realistic option than it ever has been. So if you are struggling with your current connection and the pricing has been the “put-off” on getting set up with satellite broadband, it could now be time to revisit this option.
The latest in my line of rural business satellite broadband installs took me to Green Team GB Ltd.
Green Team is the sales brand for Green Team Group – one of the leading companies in Europe in the production and sales of Christmas tree seedlings, Christmas trees, decorations and foliage. They supply garden centers and other outlets nationwide, with B&Q being their biggest UK customer.
With it being a very busy time of year for them, having a sub-standard internet connection of 0.3Mbps – 0.5Mbps speeds was giving them a headache, so they looked for a solution.
I received a call from John. We got the ball rolling on the equipment order, and set the installation date.
Now they have broadband, there shouldn’t be any problem finding your family Christmas tree this year, as the orders are flying in for them.
It has been a very busy period since my last blog, with the winds and what would have been a very steady workload anyway.
I have had the usual TV aerial, satellite dish, telephone and satellite broadband work coupled with wind damages including a call-out to an aerial that had fallen due to the top half of a chimney collapsing! I removed the bricks that were poised ready for sliding down the tiles and hitting a conservatory roof. Then it was made water tight ready for re-building, (I didn’t do that bit).
Another call-out was for a Tooway satellite broadband dish that was ripped out of a brick wall. The cause was the wind, but it didn’t help that it wasn’t installed correctly in the first place. It had loose elevation and azimuth securing bolts and the main wall securing bolts were drilled into to the mortar, which is the weakest point on a wall for mounting things.
Hopefully we have seen the end of the winds for a while, and business can return to normal. I am also hoping that I will have a little more time to update my blog every month. So until next time, Bye-bye.
