A few months ago PC advisor mag had a section on satelitte broadband,naming everywherbroadband as a company that was to launch a service for rural areas for £20 per month.I quickly singned up for the service but have heard nothing since.The web site still exists but the roll out date is always changing.Has anyone heard from them.

Everywherebroadband as you say still exist, as far as you question goes answer is no. Must admit that I had never heard of them until you posted your thread.

Not what personally I would call cheap, suppose it depends on the Individual if it is value for money.

How much will it cost?

As long as the Satellite is in orbit they should survive.

I provisionally signed up as interested in the Tiscali satellite broadband project, guess about two years ago. Est'd costs were 30 pd/month (subs), dish etc 600 pd (purchase). Before it took off the sub doubled to 60 per month, and there was a one-off expensive on-site inspection/approval fee requirement. At that point I bowed out.
Your thread makes me curious, - what satellite bb'd is around and what footprint?
