Tiscali Targets Improved Satellite Performance
Pan-European ISP Tiscali, which recently signed a deal with SatLynx to rollout its Tiscali Sat service in 10 European countries, hopes to extend that partnership if the demand for satellite broadband services continue to grow. Mario Mariani, senior vice president at Tiscali, said: “We are open to further extensions of the [two-way satellite broadband] service whenever we find good market opportunities to launch it … At the same time, we are launching in partnership with Eutelsat our new one-way satellite Internet connection service to consumers. It is already available in Italy and Sweden, and it will go live in France at the beginning of 2004.”
