Nordnet’s new broadband via satellite contracts

Nordnet have two types of Broadband via Satellite contract – Nordnet JET and Nordnet MAX.

JET points at Astra 2 and is cheaper and more domestic,

MAX points at EUTELSAT KA-SAT (9° EAST) and is more for businesses
(Eutelsat satellite uses Tooway technology which is usually faster and less variable in speed.

Nordnet have made their contracts cheaper apparently BUT they have also limited the speeds after a threshold see below…

Name Fast quantity Slow Quantity Price Comment
Jet 2 Giga 2 Giga €19:90 Too small
Jet 10 Giga 5 Giga 5 Giga €24:90 Unlimited between 11pm and 7am
Jet 30 Giga 10 Giga 20 Giga €39:90 Unlimited between 11pm and 7am
Jet 50 Giga 10 Giga 40 Giga €49:90 Unlimited between 11pm and 7am

The first tranche of data arrives at 5 times the speed of the slow second tranche (presumably 22mbps and 4 mbps)

Presumably if you don’t want to buy the kit out right at €399 you need to add €10 a month to the price. (applies to MAX too)

MAX – 22 mega reception (20 megabits per second download) and 6 mega in emision (6mbps upload)

10 giga fixes in France €29.90 €34.90 after 12 months
