Hi everyone, we at OrmeSat would like to wish all the members of The Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Team in North Wales every success for the future. We were extremely happy to be of assistance to you in providing you with your new Tooway Broadband System. I'm sure you'll put it to good use. Best regards Kevin - OrmeSat.

Ogwen Valley Mountain rescue Organisation is one of the busiest mountain rescue teams in the UK. We provide a 24-hour service every day of the year. Part of this service requires reliable internet access to update our live incident logs, team management systems, casualty location software and team member positions while on incident. Until now our provision via land line has been extremely poor with many weeks where we have had no access at all.

Local installers Ormesat recently installed a Tooway satellite system as part of a Welsh Assembly grant. The installation was quick and efficient and has provided us with a reliable connection and download speeds of around 5 Mbps whereas before we were lucky to achieve 128Kbps. This has been of great benefit to us as we can now quickly transfer relevant data during rescues and reliably broadcast data from our weather station and webcams via our website.

Best wishes

Hear hear! As a founder of a sister lowland rescue organisation (Staffordshire Search & Rescue Team) I can vouch for how important reliable communication is for these guys. Tooway is a near perfect solution for these remote stations where our 'cabled' suppliers (i.e. BT) have let us down.

Good work Ormesat and even greater kudos to the OVMRO.
