The basic components of a two-way satellite service

Mar 20th 2014 at 5:08 AM

Satellite internet services have hit in like a huge storm and it has engulfed every industry within its reach. You cannot imagine a day without internet as it has become a part of our life and with technological advancements one can now also remain connected through mobile phones. So, you have connectivity at homes, offices and in smart phones. These days the most preferred internet service is satellite broadband and they are considered better than the dial-up ones.

The introduction of two-way satellite service has resulted in better internet speeds and they have got a very easy maintenance. The options in the market are really large enough and you can easily procure internet services at the most competitive rates. A person staying in a remote or rural area has got a very limited infrastructure and having a dial-up internet facility is not a possibility. So, the obvious choice for them is satellite broadband as it does not requires cables and big infrastructure and can be quickly installed by setting up at the right angle. As a layman one should be aware about the whole functioning of the satellite internet service

How does satellite internet function?

In a satellite connection there is no additional cost involved in setting up a big infrastructure. The whole apparatus is small enough and one can install it at any location. There is a great deal of flexibility as anybody who wishes to dismantle it and install it at any other location can do it. A person who is relocating from the current location to another place can carry the whole device setup along and install and use it at the new place with ease. The popularity of two-way satellite service is considerably more in the rural and remote areas where there is no other source of entertainment.

Now people in remote locations can watch TV shows through the use of dish antennas. The main advantage of using such a service is that one need not use a telephone line or cable systems, but instead can use a satellite dish for two-way data communications. People can this way enjoy better internet speeds and can also download heavy files. More amounts of data can be downloaded in lesser amount of time. Normally it is estimated that the upload speed is about one-tenth of the actual download speed. Most of the cable and DSL are considered to having higher download speeds, but a two-way satellite service is considered to be many times faster than a normal modem.

The whole device setup consists of a dish antenna and the standard size is about two by three foot. You will be having two modems for upward and downward communication and there are coaxial cables which are present between the dish and the modem. By using these things you can enjoy uninterrupted internet connectivity.
