What is Tooway™?

Tooway™ is a bi-directional high speed satellite internet service for Internet access. Bidirectional means that receive and transmit functions are performed via the satellite; therefore there is no need for telephone line. 

What speeds can I achieve?

There are various speeds available offering download speeds of up to 22Mbps and upload speeds of up to 6 Mbps. 

What data quotas do you offer?

Anything up to 100GB

Are there any minimum requirements for computers?

No. The satellite system can connect to any PC, MAC or laptop providing there is a network card installed 

How big is the dish?

The size of the KA-Sat Tooway dish is a parabolic 72x68cm. 

Does weather affect the dish?

The service is designed to cope with most weather conditions and wind speeds up to 100mph. During periods of extremely heavy rain or snow the radio signals could become attenuated (reduced). There are, however, sophisticated and automatic measures to effectively increase the power of your system to compensate for any attenuation. 

Does it support VOIP?

Yes, all of our packages will support VOIP. Please note however that due to the high latency times associated with satellite broadband there may be a short delay (~1second) between you speaking and the other person hearing. 

Can I use Skype on the Tooway system?

Yes. Please note though Skype was originally designed for terrestrial ADSL connections, it is based on the P2P protocol so is not as efficient over satellite networks as some other VoIP solutions. 

What is FAP?

To ensure fair Internet access for all satellite broadband subscribers, Tooway maintains a Fair Access Policy (FAP). This policy establishes an equitable balance in Internet access for satellite broadband subscribers. Tooway assigns a throughput threshold to each service plan that limits the amount of data that may be downloaded/upload during a typical day. A small percentage of subscribers who exceed this limit will experience a temporary reduction of speed. 

What happens if I exceed my quota and go into FAP?

There are no financial penalties for exceeding your quota it is simply a case of having your speeds 'throttled' back. If you do happen to find yourself in that position you have the option to purchase a volume booster token of 1GB or wait for the recovery period to lapse to have you typical speeds reinstated. Available now. 

Do I need a phone or phone line?

No, the Tooway satellite system does not require a telephone line. It is a bi-directional satellite system therefore independent of the telephone lines. 

Can I have a British IP address?

Yes; all of our Tooway KA users based in the UK, utilising Home plans, will have a UK IP address by default, this in turn will provide access to sites such as BBC iPlayer and SKYGO etc.

Is the system Wireless?

The Tooway modem itself is not wireless however any DSL/Cable wireless router can be plugged straight into the Tooway modem to create a wireless network within your home.  

Can I have a fixed Public IP?

Tooway business packages include up to 4 fixed IP addresses, depending on package. Home packages use dynamically assigned IP addresses. 

Can I run a VPN connection on my Tooway system?

In theory yes however if a fixed IP is not available your VPN would need to be configured with the dynamic IP provided. 

How long is the contract length? 

Our standard contracts on our Home Packages are 24 months.  All business packages operate a 12 month contract.
