THE Ulster Farmers’ Union, in partnership with satellite broadband provider Onwave, has launched a new satellite broadband solution for UFU members.
The UFU says many rural households continue to be disadvantaged with a very poor or non-existent broadband service. The union says its new partnership with Onwave offers a broadband solution to its members who have to date been unable to access a satisfactory broadband service.
UFU deputy president Barclay Bell said: “We are delighted to launch a satellite broadband service for our members. Our basic package offers a minimum download speed of eight megabits per second and a monthly data volume of eight gigabytes. We know from speaking to our members that many of them are unable to access good broadband so we have turned to satellite technology to overcome this. I would encourage any of our members who would like to get online but have so far been unable to do so, to contact Onwave and find out more. It is very important to us that all our members have good access to the internet which is so important to family farm businesses.”
