Satellite broadband is the ideal solution for those who live in rural areas where traditional fixed-line based broadband services aren't available. We install a satellite dish to provide you with two-way access to broadband services with speeds which used to be lower have improved with download speeds of up to 30 Mbps. One of the big bonuses of satellite broadband is that we can provide it virtually anywhere in the world. All you need is a clear line of sight (generally to the south).
Satellite broadband uses geostationary satellites* – not telephone lines or cables - to deliver an internet signal directly to your home. The satellite provides two-way data communications between a satellite dish mounted on the exterior of your home and our bigblu hub here on Earth.
For example, when you click on a web link, that request is sent from your computer to the satellite. The satellite then transmits the signal to our hub, where the specific website you've requested is located and it’s beamed back to the satellite. The data is then sent to your dish and the site loads on your computer through a modem connected to the dish. While the internet signal travels a staggering distance back and forth, it only takes a handful of seconds for this entire process to occur. With satellite internet, you can connect all the computers and internet-enabled devices in your home to the web.* The satellite always stays in the same position above Earth by matching Earth’s rotation velocity as it orbits the planet.
