Superfast Essex offers speedier satellite broadband scheme

Superfast Essex has introduced a new scheme to access a basic broadband service for both residents and businesses bogged down with slowest connectivity and they have started to sign-up for it. The scheme comes under the Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) programme, which is committed to provide all those currently not benefiting from the fibre broadband rollout with speeds of 2Mbps (download). The scheme will see that businesses or residents, don’t pay more than £400 for a basic satellite service for the first year, including the costs upfront for installation, hardware and monthly charges. The BDUK scheme will run up to December of 2017.

Superfast Essex in conjunction with BDUK, is offering this scheme to hack the government’s commitment from the end of 2015, to provide premises in UK with a minimum 2Mbps speed. Both residents and businesses are eligible, if they do not have access to speeds of more than 2Mbps currently. Moreover, these premises should not be already due to be enabled, under the Superfast Essex fibre rollout plans in the coming six months. To find out whether a property is eligible, one should visit the website superfastessex.org/satellite, which has an interactive map, and use an online application.
