Title: Tooway Ku system Barcelona, Spain, Part 2
Post by europe-satellite.com on Nov 18th, 2010 at 5:27pm
Tooway Ku installation close to Barcelona center (Spain).

A Tooway Ku install for a software engineer working from home. System is installed about 10 min from Barcelona center, local adsl connection provided by Telefonica is very unstable.



After our first install (see above picture) we decided to use a slightly longer pole to get a good signal, trees where a bit in line of sight at the original location of the pole and dish.

First install, click here.



Because our slogan is “As long you can see the blue sky we connect you” we had to keep our promise, if we could not provide a proper broadband connection, the alternative for the client was to move to another home. The owner is a software engineer and working from home.



Finally we decided to go a more “drastic way” because trees are growing and we did not want to take any risk for the future.



We ordered at a local blacksmith a special pole, total length 3,50 m and 1 m below the top 4 fixing points for steel cables to stabilize the pole.


Room with a view.

The result is a rock solid pole/installation, the dish cannot move at all and the trees can grow for many years to come.
