Digiweb has launched a new range of satellite broadband packages with download speeds of 20Mbps and upload speeds of 6Mbps.

The new packages will start at €32.95 excluding VAT and will be available from 1 February.

The packages will be based on Eutelsat’s Tooway satellite broadband system.

As part of its collaboration with Eutelsat, Digiweb is also introducing a true unlimited data service, called Tooway Absolute, a limited package that will only be available to the first 20,000 customers across Europe.

“This is excellent news for Ireland as so much of our country’s growth is dependent on the digital economy and it is crucial that businesses and indeed homeowners, have access to high quality internet connectivity,” said Declan Campbell, head of operations at Digiweb.

“With download speeds of 20Mbps now available through Tooway, consumers will have the certainty of secure, always-on, high quality broadband,” Campbell said.
