Satellite Internet is an exciting option in technology that uses a satellite in outer space to deliver high speed Internet to your home. While there are numerous advantages to this type of Internet service, we have put together a list of the 5 best things about satellite Internet service.
It’s Accessible Where You Are
Satellite Internet is available in more locations than terrestrial Internet. Even in very inaccessible areas where there is no phone or cable connection available, a satellite Internet connection can still operate at top speeds. As long as you have a clear view of the southern sky, you can access high speed satellite Internet service.
Technology is Continually Improving
A satellite in geostationary orbit powers the satellite Internet connection in numerous homes throughout the nation. The satellite sends signals back down to the earth, some 22,000 miles below. Early versions of satellite Internet were much slower and easily interrupted by poor weather. Continued improvements to satellite technology has ironed out the bugs and made performance better than anything else available in rural areas.
You Get Reliable Speed
The speed and reliability of satellite Internet is unmatched in rural America. All of our plans deliver download speeds of up to 12 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 3 Mbps. This ensures you can do the things you want to do online, regardless of the plan size you choose.
It is Affordable
Pricing is a major asset when it comes to satellite Internet. The truth is that satellite Internet used to be more expensive because it was a relatively new technology. However, the success of satellite TV and the evolution of the consumer Internet market have left their marks. Today, satellite broadband companies are very competitively priced. In fact, they are the most affordable options in high speed Internet in rural areas, starting as low as $49 a month.
There is No Downtime
Satellite Internet does not have down time like other services. Since there are no telephone lines or underground cables to risk being damaged, there is little that can disturb the signal. That is a major advantage for those who spend a lot of time on the Internet or depend on it for work or school and in addition to this the family does not even have to have a hard line telephone in their home. In fact, only when severe weather strikes is service interrupted and then only for a short period of time. As soon as the weather passes your service is back, as fast as ever.
Satellite Internet is an exciting option that you should consider if you live in rural America. The days of underperforming DSL and outdated dial-up are done.
