Perfect for businesses that want Internet connectivity in areas where traditional broadband and dedicated access is not available such as rural areas. Satellite Internet sends and receives information over the Internet and delivers it to your computer through your satellite modem, giving you secure and fast Internet access.
What is Satellite Internet?
Satellite internet is a wireless connection that involves 3 satellite dishes; one at the internet service provider’s hub, one in space and one attached to your business. Once you have everything connected, the ISP will send the internet signal to the dish in space which then relays it to you. Every time you make a request (new page, download, send an email, etc.) it goes to the dish in space and then to the (ISP’s) hub. The completed request is then sent back through space, to your dish and then to your computer.
Why Should You Use Satellite Internet?
Satellite Internet is useful if your business is located in an area where other internet options such as cable or DSL isn’t available. If you’re on dialup then satellite Internet will be an “upgrade” in the sense that satellite internet is considerably faster. In fact, satellite Internet is faster than dialup. It’ll depend on what package you buy, but you can expect satellite speeds to be 10x to 35x times faster than dialup.
Satellite Internet connections can handle high bandwidth usage, so your internet speed/quality shouldn’t be affected by lots of users or “peak use times.” You also don’t need a phone line for satellite Internet.
Benefits of Satellite Internet
