Two-way satellite service for better internet connectivity

Apr 18th 2014 at 3:43 AM

The population of internet users is rising and one cannot imagine a home without a connection in place. Emergence of smart phones has also increased the user base of people using internet services globally. But, due to geographical constraints many of the service providers are not able to reach some of the rural and remote locations where setting up a proper communication system is pretty difficult. For such places having a two-way satellite service is very much important as no other means of communication is available. It enables faster communication which is unaffected by geographical conditions and the prevalent weather.

Initially the satellite internet only provided one-way service to the internet users. But know things have changed as the two-way facility has come up. In a one-way setup the user kept a traditional dial-up modem for accessing the internet. And in such a facility all of the web page requests and downloads were handled by the separate satellite modem. But these days as the two-way system have come up so there is no need for a dial-up modem as it handles both uploads and downloads.

The download speed is better in a satellite internet service. This will be there irrespective of the type of services that has been chosen. One can see speeds ranging from 500 Kbps to 1.5 Mbps. The initial setup will be bit expensive but it will be covered up in the long run. It is worth the investment made due to the quality service received post the installation. It is very much mobile which can be easily dismantled and taken anywhere and can again be re-installed. It can be fixed on a vehicle which is done by news channels and the media to provide a live feed of the event that is happening at a particular area.

In a two-way satellite service one has to procure and install a dish antenna and the required modem. Initially some professional help will be required when doing the installation but later on it can be done on your own. For instance, anybody relocating to a new place might find it difficult to take along the dial-up connection to a new place. For this, they might have to seek the help of the service providers and enquire if they can extend their services at the new location and whether you can use the same connection. Most of the times it might not be a possibility and hence a satellite internet is lot more convenient.

Another major benefit of using a two-way satellite service is that it is available everywhere and anybody can use it with ease. It is fit for areas that are far away from cities which lack other means of getting a broadband connectivity. This has definitely enhanced the communication system as now remote and urban areas are well connected.
