Pay As You Go satellite internet in Spain

I am looking for a satellite internet provider in Spain and have been trying to mug up on the subject to have some idea of what my precise needs are.  As a relative newbie it can be very confusing!

I am in Spain for 2 or 3 weeks every 3 months.  Using GPRS I get through about 1 Gig in 3 weeks and I estimate this consumption wouldn't change very much if I get satellite internet.

So a Pay As You Go (what some firms seem to refer to as a 'Backup' system) would be ideal.

Ongoing budget is about 50 euros a month.  In other words, I would want 600 euros per year to include a pullthrough allowance in line with my estimate above.

Can anyone suggest where I can get such a solution, and how much the initial setup would cost?

I have looked at Telefonica's satellite offering and I have no doubt their monthly price is unbeatable!  But the initial cost (assuming the worst possible interpretation of the very confusing price list) is sky high.  No pun intended.

Anyway, I would be grateful for suggestions.  I need to get a system up and running before the end of the year.

I should perhaps emphasise that my monthly budget in the above post is 50 euros or thereabouts.

Ask amongst the service providers listed on page http://www.satsig.net/ivsat-europe.htm

GT&T offer a suitable low cost service called  Basic 1  128 kbps down / 32 kbps up, shared 25:1 at +- 70 € / Month.   Go to their web site http://www.globaltt.com/  and click on SkyOne and it shows a range of prices.

Best regards, Eric.
