TechRadar's verdict

"Astra2Connect is a great way to get broadband internet access if your location stops you from getting it reliably, if at all, already. The rest of us are better off sticking with ADSL."
For
  • Broadband access for anyone
  • it's reliable and reasonably quick
  • you don't need a telephone line
  • it's better than dial-up or no broadband access at all
  • satellite dish can double as a digital TV receiver
Against
  • Pricey compared to ADSL
  • relatively slow speeds
  • high latency times make it unsuited to online gamers
  • doesn't currently work with BBC iPlayer etc
