Great info LoTwan, thanks very much !
How low is that dish mounted ? Did it have to be that low ?
Did they charge extra for the pole mount ?
Do you mind me asking why you went with Onwave over Digiweb ?
- They didn't charge extra for the pole mount but they knew about it in advance, weeks ago. It was actually their suggestion in February that I go with a pole mount because I didn't want the dish on the side of the building. It is a new build and I ran 6 CT100's in from the pole straight to the attic.
- I went with Onwave because their office is 10km down the road I have customer support on my doorstep. They are marketing at €5 more expensive a month but have a price match promise and I suspect they will just drop to meet digiweb if enough people take them up on the offer.
I could have applied for and waited around for the NBS (for which they have a modified package on the KA SAT) but I don't want to sit around waiting for 6 months only to qualify for the lowest package.
There is reference to toowaydirect.co.uk earlier in this thread and I didn't come back to their pricing (because I was working on my phone). They are frontloading installation charges and having customers buy the equipment (onwave own my dish & satellite router) to keep the monthly cost down. They are also requiring a block mount for the dish which I couldn't provide.
I haven't tried VOIP yet because I don't have anyone to Skype with at the moment I will hook up the phone tomorrow but it is awkward as the router is in the attic and I have to arrange a different phone.
