How It Works
Normal broadband works via your phone cables. The further you are from the phone exchange, the slower the connection. Sometimes you can be so far away that you can't even get broadband at all, and have to use an old fashioned dial up modem. You could of course use a mobile dongle, but apart from being expensive, the signals tend to be poor in the same rural areas than broadband doesn't work.
Satellite Internet access from Broadband Everywhwere is the answer. It's ideal for rural Internet users who want broadband access and it doesn't use phone lines or mobile networks, but instead uses a satellite dish for two-way (upload and download) communication.
The most recent Satellite lauched offers speed comparable with very good phone line based broadband - of up to 20Mbps. That's enough speed for several people in the house to be watching iPlayer - in HD - at the same time.
Two-way satellite Internet consists of:
- A special two-way satellite dish - slightly bigger than a Sky dish
- A satellite modem attached to your computer or WiFi router
- A clear view to the southern sky - if you've already got Sky or Freesat TV, you'll have this
This is not the satellite-Internet service of yesterday that you may have heard of, that needed you to have a dial-up modem for the information you send to the Internet, this is a true two-way system.
