Title: Tariam Rises Again!
Post by Sean_Williams on Jun 15th, 2009 at 10:32am
I received this email from them over the weekend ...

"Tariam takes Homenet forward another 3 steps

Satellite Internet Service Provider Tariam has announced a substantial increase in “horsepower” for its domestic Homenet services. Download performance has been improved significantly from 2 Mbps, to up to 3.6 Mbps, and the priority traffic allowances for each of its service offerings have been doubled.

This means the entry level service now offers a full 2.4 GB allowance every month with speeds of over 3.5 megabits. This is a big step forward and is particularly good news for those homes and small businesses situated outside the ADSL footprint in the so-called “not-spots”. The entry level service costs just £39.99 (inc VAT) per month.

Voice over IP (VoIP) is also being supported for the first time.

Homenet (powered by TooWay) is seen by many as the answer to the 9% of UK households still on dial-up and in the “not-spots” highlighted by Telecommunications Minister Lord Clark’s recent ‘Digital Britain’ address.

Lord Clark also conceded that “for up to 30% of the UK there is little or no commercial case for anyone to invest in the next generation of terrestrial broadband services”.

In this scenario, satellite based service like Homenet fill the digital divide and offer a true high-speed alternative. Tariam’s Homenet service is expected to jump to 10 Mbps in 2010 when a new satellite is launched."

Above increase is not related to Tarium or any other Tooway provider. Its a general increase from Skylogic and it will effect all Tooway users regardsless provider.

Bandwidth upgrade (monthly volume) effects ONLY KU systems and NOT KA systems. Up/Down speeds upgrade effects both systems.
