SES Satellite Broadband

SES Broadband is Europe's newest Ka band satellite broadband service

Using the latest hardware and antenna technology SES Broadband offers super-fast satellite broadband, but currently only in England, Ireland, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands, but still irrespective of whether there's any fixed line infrastructure nearby.

Airtime starts at an unbelievable £19.99 a month inclusive of UK VAT. SES Broadband is a bidirectional high speed satellite service for broadband Internet access. Bidirectional means that receive and transmit functions are performed via the satellite; therefore there is no need for telephone line.



SES Broadband offers a fast download speed up to 20Mb, and a fast upload speed of up to 2Mb with excellent network performance.

  • Excellent performance, our network of choice for England, Ireland & Wales
  • A fixed, public UK IP address ideal for downloading UK content or video
  • FreeZone UNLIMITED off-peak data available as a bolt-on option on all tariffs**
  • Add the FreeZone bolt-on and get unlimited data at night - (2300 - 0700 Luxembourg Time, which is usually UK + 1 hour) Schedule heavy files such as iPlayer programmes to download during your FreeZone time and the data doesn't come out of your monthly allowance - a handy bolt-on if you like to stock up on the odd download but don't think you'll need it during those peak hours.

SES Pro Unlimited

SES Pro UNLIMITED is an excellent product for very heavy or business users. Whilst the product doesn't cap the amount of data you pass over the connection, the dynamic Fair Use Policy does use a stepped process to manage the speed of the connection depending on how much data you pass over the connection, and how busy the SES network is at that specific time. So it's not correct to think that this tariff is unrestricted, but it may still be your best option depending on your user profile.

The peak times on the network are between 4.00 pm and 11.00 pm, and during these times if you're a very heavy user, you'll see less than the peak speeds. If you're a light user, and use the connection mainly outside these peak times, you'll see the peak speeds the majority of the time.

SES Pro 100

Our Pro 100, 200, 300, 500 and 1000 GB super-products are designed for customers who download very large amounts of data and want the flexibility to be able to do that at any time of the day or night.

The download/upload data allocations of these super products is different to our standard products, and they are not designed for customers who just want to upload very large amounts of data.

For every 42.6 GB of data you download, you are also automatically allocated 8.5 GB of upload data.

So in a worked example, with the SES Pro 100, each month you are given a download data allocation of 85.2 GB and an upload allocation of 17 GB. But the upload allocations are added in 8.5 GB tranches as you consume each 42.6 GB of download data.

As with all SES broadband products, you can also use the FUP reset facility to get an additional allocation of data (equal to that given with your chosen tariff) for a cost of 50% of your monthly airtime tariff. Be aware however that if you haven't consumed all the data in your FUP reset allocation by the time your next monthly data quota is allocated to your account, you will lose the data allowance that was credited as a result of the FUP reset.
