Just type satellite broadband in a Google search. There are lots of companies offering it.

I have Satellite broadband from BT.
It is very good for normal use - but no good for games & so on - due to the approx 600 milisec delays of the satellite.
If you do a lot of d/l or u/l the bandwidth is often reduced in peak times.
Speeds are approx 500k d/l & 160k u/l - however i have known it to be 800k in early hours
cost is approx 70 per month inc vat. but is expensivee to install. (I got mine cheap - one of the first last August).
hope this is some help.

I'm also in the no broadband area,but i read an article in a mag about a company called SkyLinc (click here) who say that they've developed a way of providing broadband to every area of the UK using balloons and a radio link,(i think),but the service won't be ready till sometime next year.We'll have to keep our eyes and ears open for more info....SB
