How Satellite Internet Works
Other Internet providers rely on wires to bring you Internet service. That’s why some providers like DSL and cable often aren’t available in rural places. Distance is no issue for a satellite Internet connection. The signal travels more than 22,000 miles, and its speeds are comparable to DSL.
Satellite communications technology is some of the most advanced in the world, with the power to bring high-speed Internet to virtually anyone with a clear view of the southern sky.
No wires. No limitations. Just high-speed performance wherever you live.
Space-age technology makes it possible
We’ve come a long way since Sputnik. Satellites in space communicate with satellite dishes on Earth as easily as two people standing side by side.
Is satellite Internet any good? Let us show you just how good high-speed satellite Internet is. It’s a high-tech process that all happens in the blink of an eye. In fact, if you blink you’ll probably miss it.
- It all starts with you. You use your computer to access a particular site on the Internet. Type in a URL. Click on a link. Search for a term in Google or Bing.
- This request is sent from the satellite dish installed at your home to a satellite in space that orbits about 22,000 miles above the equator, waiting to take your request.
- Once the satellite receives the request, it relays a signal to a Network Operations Center (NOC). These centers are located throughout North America.
- The NOC accepts the signal from the satellite, retrieves the requested website or page, and sends that data back to the satellite in space.
- Now it’s the same process in reverse. The satellite sends the retrieved data to the satellite dish at your home. The dish directs the information to your computer or any other web-enabled devices in your home.
- The site loads with only a fraction of a second’s delay. You get to do everything you need to do online at high speeds.
Forget about slow dial-up. Your waiting days are over when you choose the best satellite Internet service.
