Eutelsat Boosts Tooway Satellite Broadband to 18 Mbps

 Eutelsat is boosting the performance of its Tooway satellite service to up to 18 Mbps to residential customers across Europe and the Mediterranean Basin. Upload speeds up to 6 Mbps are possible. The upgrade is achieved using better modulation -- from 8PSK to 16APSK. Previously, the top rate was 10 Mbps.

Tooway is delivered via Eutelsat's KA-SAT High Throughput Satellite. The company provides a cap of up to 50 Gigabytes per month. The pricing levels remain the same. A new entry level package is also being launched, offering download speeds of up to 2Mbps and upload speeds of up to 1Mbps for an expected retail price from EUR19.90.
