The five price points are EUR 15.99, EUR 27.99, EUR 39.99, EUR 54.99 and EUR 89.99 a month on one-year contracts. Reception equipment can be rented or purchased for EUR 99 to EUR 259.

This is what you can expect from Sat2Way in France with the 54.99euro package. And the Jitter speed is by no means the worst I have come across. I'd like to know why I make and receive calls and cannot be heard. Most of the time I have to use my mobile to do important things like make hotel or airline reservations. Everybody tells me that the line is awful - either I sound "underwater", the line breaks all the time or the call is completely cut. Sat2way Technical Service never responds to messages left on its problem line. As the French say, I am throwing money into the air, literally!
