I have just seen on this site

http://www.tooway.it/Stampa/SKYLOGIC-AND-skyDSL-GLOBAL-SIGN-AGREEMENT-FOR-CONSUM...

The text is the following:

Paris, Berlin, March 28, 2011

Skylogic, the broadband subsidiary of Eutelsat Communications (Euronext Paris: ETL), and skyDSL Global GmbH, a European pioneer of satellite Internet services, announce the extension of their longstanding partnership with an initial five-year contract amounting to
€3 million enabling skyDSL to market the next-generation Tooway™ service provided by KA-SAT, Eutelsat’s powerful new High Throughput Satellite.

If you go to the skydsl site here
(choose english)

https://es.skydsl.eu/index.php?c=home

They seem to be offering a very good price connexion
But the website has many errors and it looks like it has been put together very fast.

Does this mean that skydsl with have exclusivity on offering Ka-sat?

By the way.
I thought  skydsl went bankrupt?

Skydsl has been a relaible sat provider since 2004 at least to my humble self.
Does anybody know at what time they will start providing the ka-sat? I have heard something of delivering the hardware in June.

Tooway KA-SAT is available from different agents, resellers in Europe. There is no exclusivity and the quality of bandwidth service is everywhere the same and provided by Skylogic (Eutelsat) Italy and not by agents or resellers.

Beside the new Tooway there will be also a new service from Hylas, this is provided by Avanti Communications in London and available from May 1st 2011.

...
A new Avanti Hylas Ka band satellite system installed at our Spanish office (04-05-2011).

Prodelin 74 cm (94x67 cm) Ka dish and a Hughes 1W Ka ODU.

...

UK IP address, this gives you unrestricted access to UK websites like BBC iPlayer and ITV iPlayer etc. from any location within the Hylas KA footprint.

...
