Night-Time free data on some packages 11:00pm - 7:00am local.

“Whilst satellite broadband is unquestionably the answer for many people stuck in not spots and now boasts many tens of thousands of satisfied users, we haven’t been resting on our laurels. Customer’s expectations are naturally increasing over time; with video and streaming TV programs becoming increasingly popular, and with more and more homes having several broadband enabled devices, our customers want more performance.


Tooway Direct: Fastest residential satellite broadband service in the world

The speed boost also means that Tooway Direct offers the fastest domestic satellite broadband in the world.

“The new Tooway services raise the bar to a level where traditional wired services look embarrassingly slow, even in many major towns and cities. These new service levels mean even larger families with several PCs and smartphone users can share the services with total confidence in getting a good user experience,” Walwyn added.

The nature of satellite broadband means that you don’t need to live in an area covered by a BT exchange or by Virgin Media’s cable network.

“We feel that this will redraw the broadband map of Europe, as the new services mean tens of thousands of properties (that wouldn’t have been able to otherwise) can now access the next wave of broadband functionality.”

 How does the data allowance work?

Some satellite broadband networks will throttle you even if the network isn't that busy and the bandwidth to maintain services at full speed isn't being used by other customers. The Tooway network won't do that. Our emphasis is on delivering you the best performance that the network can deliver within your chosen data allowance.

Of course we have to take steps to manage usage. If we don't customers can suffer from degraded or denied service when one user (or a small group of users) consumes a disproportionate amount of the network's resources. For instance during peak times, customers who are persistently very heavy users may find that non urgent traffic (like peer-to-peer networking) may be assigned a different priority level by the network to ensure other users receive a good quality service.

The way we manage our network means that if the network is very busy, customers who've used less than 50% of their monthly data allowance will be given slightly higher priority to those who've used more than 50%. We estimate that this will only occur at the peak times of network activity.

Customers data allowances run for 1 month from their connection date, and customers data accounts are credited with their new allowance on each connection date anniversary.
