Hylas 1 Vs Tooway day 2 - Technology & Installation


As discussed before both Hylas1 and Tooway are using KA-band technology. The biggest difference between these two systems is in the technology the satellites are based around.

Tooway built their satellite on excising knowledge of a satellite anatomy using the old techniques which have been tried and tested.

Hylas1 is cutting edge in its approach; part funded by the UK government the satellite was designed from the ground up with the high-speed internet delivery in mind.


All satellite internet systems will only provide a service in line with the quality of the installation - If a system is installed by a professional VSAT installer, with equipment designed to be used for the installation of Ka systems and to a recognised level of quality, then it should work to the best of its abilities. If it is self-installed or installed by a satellite TV installer, then the quality will suffer.

Tooway has always been a Do-It-Yourself solution, you can buy the equipment and either install it yourself or pay a local VSAT installer, we recommend ourselves of course, to do it for you. As installations are not guaranteed by Tooway, if you have a problem - it is your problem - unless you are a client of ours, since we install all our systems to the Hylas specification, we offer a 12 month guarantee when the equipment is bought through us.

Hylas on the other hand, is a commercial quality system at a home user price, but must be installed only by an accredited installer following specific guidelines. All installations are guaranteed for 12 months, and telephone support is available 7 days a week.
 We always recommend a train installer fits the product as some parts if not fitted correctly or forced can break and they are very costly to replace.
The Christmas song of the day comes courtesy of the Live Lounge again on bbc. A cover of ‘A fairytale in New York’

Hylas 1 Vs Tooway day 1 - Overview.

Satellite internet is little known about in the mainstream of technologies. But there are two systems that complete for the limelight in the UK market. Both are using the KA-band to send receive data, this allows for faster internet connections than the previous KU-band.

Tooways’s system is engineered to be quick, easy solution for the rural home users which will provide a connection which is faster than the dial-up connection previously had.

Hylas 1 is a commercial quality system, regarded in the industry as the professional system; It is priced a little higher than Tooway but offering high standards with equipment and quality which were not previously available as the price.

Christmas countdown song of the day...As Micheal Buble was in the Live Lounge today on BBC Radio 1 here is his cover of ‘White Christmas.’ Always reminds me of ‘Home Alone’

Countryside broadband!

News today is finally catching up with what lots of us knew. The 4G network is going to take longer than expected. 2013 is the now the date that residents can find themselves with a 4G network. But is this even covering the hardest to reach areas? 

I've stated news before about rural homes and businesses in areas where broadband cannot reach. This has not highlighted the issue. Even more homes face not being up to date with the latest technology. Many of them may not even be covered in the plans for the 4G networks.

"Current plans mean the 4G network won't be in place until 2013 at the earliest and will only allow for a maximum of 98% of the UK to be covered."

"Coverage is just part of it," he says.
"The other issue is with regard to connection speeds."
"We're seeing that widening gap between those people in rural areas, in terms of the speed of their connection with broadband, and those superfast connections that are increasingly emerging in urban areas."
Phil Bricknell
Report from BBC news

So now that other technologies have been given a go and failed to give a correct date, and even if the service would cover the areas which are most needy. 

How about give satellite broadband a go? fast speeds, a reliable service and cheaper than you may thin. As the technology evolves the price decreases as they find ways to make the actual satellites cheaper and the dishes themselves smaller.

This is only a short blog for the day
Also i am starting a christmas song countdown todays song comes from Coldplay- Christmas Lights, not an oldie but still a good song, especially for all you fans.

Satellite broadband packages for home

It’s that Festive time of year. But this year there is more strain on money woes than usual.  Heating bills alone cost a large chunk of the UK population over 10% of their monthly income.  But whilst there are these worries HySpeed Broadband has decided to go against trends and cut its prices!

Satellite internet has always been seen as an expensive market, and to be perfectly honest the costs will never match up with conventional wired solutions, due to satellite rental and equipment costs.  

Our satellite broadband solutions have now just become more affordable whilst keeping the top quality we have always strived to have.  

As stated here are the price changes.

Package name                         Old price                              New Price

HySpeed I                               £29.99p/m                          £19.50p/m

HySpeed II                              £39.99p/m                          £26.50p/m

HySpeed III                             £49.99p/m                          £32.99p/m

HySpeed Pro I                         £59.99p/m                          £43.99p/m

HySpeed Pro II                       £69.99p/m                          £60.80p/m

As you can see the price drop is quite significant. We feel that the customer should not be punishing for living in a picturesque rural not-spots, or just to far away from the telephone exchange. So we want to give the best deals in order to get Britain up to speed and join the cyber community. Whether it be on Facebook (‘Like us’), Twitter (‘tweet us’),  Google+ ( ‘Circle us’?), or any other forms of social media.

Please pass this blog on as if it is not helping you, it could help out a family who are not connected. Raise awareness for rural not-spots! And help out a family today.
