However the speeds gap is not just between rural and urban areas, but connections can often be weak in urban areas. In Ireland the digital divide exists between suburbs and the inner city.

Those living in rural areas of Ireland often do not have the existing infrastructure for cable and DSL internet, making satellite broadband a better option.

Our satellite packages are offered through our partner Konnect. Konnect have launched brand new beams using state of the art satellite technology.

Konnect is a new venture by Eutelsat and Big Blu, who have set up satellite beams across Europe, including several across Ireland. They are operating through Eutelsat We Konnect satellite located 36,000 km from Earth. 

Now households who otherwise would have no internet connection are being offered 100% connectivity and superfast broadband speeds. Satellite broadband in the past has been a niche, expensive product.

However, Konnect is bringing satellite broadband to the mainstream market, widely being distributed across Ireland, with no needs for digging up roads and long lines of cables.

How does Satellite Broadband work?

Satellite broadband is set up in your home through the installation of a satellite dish, using satellite technology instead of phone lines or fibre optic cables. No connection to any infrastructure is required, as the dish mounted to your house is beamed up to the satellite above the equator and back down to your house. 

This satellite dish is connected to a modem within your home. This professional installation is provided through our satellite provide, Konnect. Installations begin January 2021.
