Contract Win For Avanti Communications Group With BT For B'band Services

[Satnews] Avanti Communications Group plc announces a new contract with BT, to be part of BT's supply of wholesale consumer broadband services, which will be sold onwards to consumers in the UK through a network of satellite resellers under the auspices of the British Government’s Universal Service Commitment.
Under this plan directed by Broadband Delivery UK (“BDUK”), as many as 300,000 homes which cannot access greater than 2 Mbps from terrestrial networks will be eligible to receive a contribution from government to fund the installation of satellite broadband services, with the consumer then paying monthly service charges.  The scheme is expected to go live during December.
