Broadband tops Bear Grylls’s necessities

The Man

Bear Grylls, adventurer, writer and star of “Born Survivor” and “Man vs. Wild”, has found the answer to all of his connectivity needs with satellite broadband.

The Challenge

In true survivor style, Bear likes to relax in his holiday home, which is situated in one of the most remote places in the UK – on his own island off the coast of Wales. However, topping the list of Bear’s necessities was a broadband connection that would enable him to stay in touch with family and friends, as well as catch up with his favourite shows on Channel 4oD and BBC iPlayer.

The Answer

With no fixed line broadband options available on the island, Bear looked further afield and found the answer to all his problems with satellite broadband.

Satellite broadband is available everywhere in the UK and is used across the world to connect people in remote locations – from reporters in Afghanistan, emergency services in rural areas to enabling the military to communicate from some of the most hostile and complex environments on the planet. The technology is similar to Sky TV dishes – except instead of just receiving the signal, the signal goes “two ways” – so that a broadband connection can be enabled.

Bear’s satelllite broadband was installed by ToowayDirect, part of Satellite Solutions Worldwide, Europe’s premier supplier of Satellite Broadband Communications. ToowayDirect connects homeowners across the UK who live in rural and “not spot” areas
