Satellite internet connection is suitable if you can't get phone line broadband (ADSL) or mobile phone internet connection. Satellite Broadband Internet for homes and business is a last resort if faced with no terrestrial internet connection.
The picture above and the one lower down are typical of potential customer locations.
Nov 2014: The company "Broadband-Algarve.net" no longer appears to exist. I don't know the details. The company may have been taken over by "Simply Algarve" or "Europasat". I have no idea. If anyone knows please tell me and help update this page.

There are a number of resellers of Tooway service. Various price packages exist to suit everyone's needs.
Note: Total independence from terrestrial infrastructure - No telephone line required. Likely customers are homes and small/medium sized businesses unable to connect to the internet via ADSL or using mobile phone solutions.
