BeyonDSL to expand SES satellite internet in UK

30 April 2013 | Mitch Sayers


SES has selected BeyonDSL to distribute its SES Broadband service, Satellite Internet, across the UK and Ireland.

The service uses Ka-band capacity on SES’s Astra 2F satellite and offers up to 20 Mbps download speeds for people who do not have access to fixed-line broadband.

BeyonDSL will market and distribute the service in the UK and Ireland which requires users to install a satellite dish to access the Luxembourg-based company’s satellite network.

“We are convinced that our new Ka-band solution presents a great alternative to users who do not have access to terrestrial broadband offers,” said Patrick Biewer, MD of SES.

SES has expanded its service into Germany in a similar agreement with Newtec.
