Whitslaid Farm


Whitslaid Farm had a very poor broadband connection because it is located over 5 miles from the nearest telephone exchange and asked Premitel for help.

It soon became clear that their only option for improving broadband speeds was to install satellite broadband.

We organised satellite broadband and upgraded their internal cabling and network equipment so that they could take advantage of the significantly higher broadband speeds.

Our solution included several HomePlug (or Powerline) WiFi mains adaptors.

The satellite broadband service at over 20Mbps was over 20 times faster than their ADSL broadband connection.

The only problem was that the data download limits on satellite broadband can be restricting, particularly if video streaming services such as the BBC iPlayer are used.

Going over the download limits on satellite broadband services can be expensive if not monitored and controlled.
