High speed internet via satellite broadband

Feb 24th 2015 at 4:05 AM

Satellite broadband is referred to as internet services via satellite. It is a bi-directional internet connection established through communications satellite instead of telephone line or other means. Nowadays, satellite broadband is downright comparable with DSL broadband in terms of performance as well as cost. You enjoy offering of 20 Mbps and triple play – internet, voice and TV – with the same internet.

The fibers offer outstanding performance but it generally takes more time and comes costly. Also, it is not available to the internet users within a reasonable time frame. On the other hand, high speed satellite broadband services are available immediately and offer the only broadband solution for those who live in remote areas with slow or no broadband access at all.

With many improvements in the technology, satellite broadband is extremely cost-effective with monthly subscriptions comparable with and often better than the equivalent ADSL offers. Users who want to avail the facility can request modem and dish which they can install themselves. Alternatively, they can call a professional or trained engineer to do the same.

Establishing connection via satellite requires you to install a small satellite dish outside your residence, office or wherever you need these services. The dish has to face the sky to be able to receive signals and connect to the internet. The satellite modem has to be plugged into your computer and no telephone connection is required. The quality of services is high and users can access the full range of internet applications like emailing, VOIP, surfing the web, watching videos or downloading music.

With innumerable advancements being made in this direction, the broadband connectivity is being maximized for all citizens. Areas with no or very poor connectivity are making better use of the technology. Various packages and schemes have been implemented in different parts of the world to connect remote communities using satellite broadband. There are many projects supporting high speed satellite broadband to provide better opportunities to users.

People are often seen confused over the true benefits of broadband internet access through satellite. The most hyped point is its fast speed. However, it is more than just speed, it provides much more. You actually enjoy always on internet facility that is not possible with dial up connections. Also, your phone connection is no longer tied-up and hence you don’t need a separate phone line. If you have more than one computer, you can enjoy better services as internet access can be easily shared over a network.
