At the Broadband conference today in Tipperary Institute, Eircom were launching their sat access product. This is being offered by Media Sat. Media sat have been in business since 1998 and are now an eircom official satellite partner (since 27th May 2004) . They too offer a number of options with different pricing Models
The options range from Down via satellite and up via PSTN to up and down via satellite.
Prices start from 50 Euro per month approx.
There is a one off install fee of 420 Euro and you own the dish, The dish points at the astra 1 satellite and can be used to big up digital TV content.
Personally this is not an ideal solution for my needs as I require low response times, Sat access is typicall 0.8 seconds to 2 seconds delay.
I am still holding out for broadband…
