1 Is high speed satellite internet right for me? Are you constantly frustrated by slow or unreliable broadband? Unsure whether the government fibre roll out will ever reach you? Would you like to do more online? If you have answered yes to to one or more of these questions the chances are high speed satellite internet is right for you and this handy guide will explain all you need to know. Government backed satellite broadband subsidy schemes are now available across most of the UK. Depending where you live, you could be eligible for a free installation and packages offering up to 30Mbps superfast broadband. subsidised scheme details inside

2 Introduction With each passing year, the internet takes on a bigger role in day-to-day life. For everyday connected life such as running a business, kids doing their homework or just keeping up with friends and family, films or football, a reliable high speed connection is more important than ever. However, not every home or business, can get a decent quality fixed line connection to enjoy the full power of the internet. This is because the old copper network (ADSL) is just not up to the job and the new fibre optic technology required to deliver super-fast broadband speeds is expensive and timeconsuming to install. Unfortunately, that means that it is just not commercially viable for it to be rolled out in many rural and remote areas and even some urban locations. As a result, more and more people just like you are now being told that they will not receive a superfast fibre upgrade in the foreseeable future. The good news is that for many of these people, there are now national subsidy schemes offering free satellite broadband installation. One such alternative is Avonline s satellite broadband service. You may have heard of this technology, but are not sure exactly how it works and what s involved. Official scheme supplier Avonline Broadband has delivered satellite broadband since With 100% UK coverage, Avonline only use the latest technology delivering the fastest satellite internet services in Europe. Read on and find out why this service might be just what you need to get connected to better broadband fast. What is satellite broadband? Before you can decide if Avonline is the right choice for you, it s important to understand what satellite broadband is and how it works. The concept is simple. Rather than use a copper or fibre line connected to your house, you use a small satellite dish at your home to safely transfer information to and from a satellite in space. As the satellite is positioned high in space it means that it can immediately provide coverage to 100%of the country, something no other network can do. The dish is connected to a modem via a single wire, the modem is then plugged into your computer or wireless router and you re online. Satellite is already used by several million customers around the globe for high speed internet access. Looking forward, it will become even more commonplace as the need to achieve 100% connectivity can only be met by using satellite broadband more widely.

3 What are the advantages of satellite? Speed Avonline Broadband offers Europe s fastest services delivering up to 30Mbps downloads speeds or 6Mbps upload speeds. That s up to fifteen times faster than the governments current 2Mbps minimum service commitment. Flexible Data Packages range from 5GB to 200GB per month and many packages offer unlimited overnight data allowances. Availability Satellite already offers fast broadband coverage to 100% of the UK guaranteed. And you can usually get installed in about a week. Affordability Although satellite will never be as inexpensive as ADSL, packages start at just 9.95/month. No phone line required Most ADSL and fibre broadband services require a compulsory phone line rental. You can save over 200 every year by choosing satellite as Avonline do not. Fibre Guarantee Avonline Broadband offers a quick and easy switch to fibre guarantee giving you the flexibility you need if fibre networks reach you in the future. Why is satellite so well suited to rural areas? From 22,000 miles high, the satellite can connect to every square mile of the UK with the same quality and speed of service. And because every fixed line (copper or fibre) network must have a cable every inch of the way to your home or business, no fixed line network can ever offer 100% coverage. Even mobile networks need more and more masts and cabling to offer faster services. After 10 years, 3G can only reach 70% of UK geography. With satellite, one small dish attached to your home means you can access the same speeds whether you re on a remote mountain side or in the heart of the city.

4 What does Avonline offer? Avonline plc has delivered telecoms services for over 35 years. Their satellite broadband team started in 2002 and they provide satellite broadband to more customers in the UK than any other provider. Avonline Broadband offers a wide range of packages with some features that are unique to the UK market. They offer Europe s fastest and most popular service with a range of packages, from 5GB to 150GB per month, many of which are covered by their unique average speed guarentee. Their UK based Helpdesk, provides straight-forward advice from first enquiry, through to free technical support if you need help. Fast speeds Not only does Avonline offer the fastest satellite services in Europe, they are the only satellite broadband company in the UK to offer an average speed guarantee. On their Avanti services, their target is to deliver an average speed of 9Mbps measured across ALL of their Avanti customers on a rolling 30 day basis. If they can t achieve this and you want to end your contract, you just provide them with 7 days written notice to leave - it s that simple - guaranteed. Lowest prices As the Service Provider to more UK homes than any other satellite broadband provider, they aim to provide a wide range of packages at the lowest prices. With the lowest up front costs, including a standard installation rate anywhere on UK mainland, there has never been a better time to choose satellite broadband. Avonline also offers flexible contract terms from 30 days to 24 months and an attractive referral scheme when you recommend friends and family to the service. Switch to Fibre Guarantee The government is currently working to roll out super-fast fibre optic broadband to 95 per cent of the UK by The remaining, mostly rural, 1.5 million homes are currently offered just 2Mbps, so it s important for you to know whether you re likely to be in the 95% or the 5%. Unfortunately it isn t always clear when, or even whether the fibre upgrade programme will reach you. Even when it does, many people are quickly finding that it isn t as fast as they d been led to believe. The hope that fibre will arrive sooner than is likely and that when (or if) it does, it ll be faster than technically possible is preventing many homes and businesses from making a decision to improve their broadband today. That s where Avonline s innovative Fibre Guarantee comes in handy. It simply says that whenever you sign up for satellite broadband, if fibre then becomes available in your area, if you want to, they can switch you to fibre and end the satellite contract. So fibre or not, Avonline s simple guarantee means that you can choose better broadband today, safe in the knowledge that if a better fibre option does arrive, you can easily switch in the future.

5 So is Avonline s satellite broadband right for me? We ve covered how quick, simple and cost-effective it is to get satellite broadband to you wherever you live. To recap, consider the questions below: Are you constantly frustrated by slow or unreliable broadband? Are you unsure whether the government fibre rollout will reach you? Would you like to do more online, saving time and money? Do you pay over 200 every year for line rental just to get a bad broadband service? Would you like to get high speed internet access next week? If you ve answered yes to one or more of these questions, the chances are that Avonline s satellite broadband is right for you. What s more, it s quite likely that you could be eligible for a FREE INSTALLATION under one of the government subsidy schemes now live across the UK. Want to know more?
