Hi can anyone tell me what is available? I have seen loads of websites offering satellite broadband but none stating prices.

Could someone help? I will be travelling Europe in a camper van and want internet access as I run a little online business.

I do not want to be paying astronomical fees per meg or monthly costs if at all possible.

Thanks

Hello jimcanswim

You can use OPENSKY as downlink (one-way satellite) and a mobile connection (GPRS, GSM or whatever) as uplink.

This is a very practical and low-cost solution.

Hi Malaika, you have a very interesting suggestion there. I cannot seem to find much information apart from priceplans on that site.

I was wondering about the cost of equipment? Do I have to buy the equipment myself then link it up? Using the mobile for uploading, would I still be subject to roaming rates and would I have to be in a 3G location?

Thanks for the info, it is the most interesting I have seen so far.

Cheers

Hi malaika, I have tried contacting them but their information is c**p.  They just keep referring me to the internet site they have which is s***e.

There is nowhere near enough information. I think I will give this company a miss, thanks anyway.
