Why choose satellite broadband?
Satellite broadband has been available for some time, but only to remote and very rural users. Internet on ships at sea has also been provided by satellite links, but the provisioning of broadband this way is becoming more popular as more providers offer deals that are attractive to users. So why would you choose satellite broadband over the other options?
Choosing satellite broadband
Satellite broadband offers some important advantages, particularly in Australia. There are some very important reasons to consider choosing satellite broadband.
- Satellite broadband, because it is relayed by geostationary satellites (satellites that hold their position in space relative to earth) is available all over the earth. This includes ships at sea, as well as remote parts of the planet, including some remote areas of Australia
- Broadband through satellites is very fast, particularly compared to dial-up broadband
- Satellite broadband does not tie up, or in fact even use, your phone lines, leaving these free for phone use
- Reliability is good with satellite broadband. If you are located at some distance from your telephone exchange, broadband provision may be less reliable, making satellite a good choice
- The cost of satellite broadband is continuing to decrease. In the past, satellite broadband was too expensive to be a practical option for most people, and was limited to those who really required it; those in remote areas
- There are an increasing number of providers now offering satellite broadband. Simply check with your provider to determine whether you can access it or not, and to find out which plan might suit your needs. The variety of plans for satellite have also increased to the point where there is now not only choice in providers, but in plans offered by those providers
- Although satellite broadband transmissions can be affected by factors such as inclement weather and heavy cloud cover, these problems are being resolved to provide a reliable service
Satellite broadband is now a realistic option for most people. To find a plan that suits you, contact your local broadband provider. If your regular provider doesn't offer satellite, try another one that does.
Satellite broadband explained
Satellite broadband has been available to remote Australians for many years, as people living in these areas are not able to access cable based broadband. However, the recent decreases in cost and improvements in technology mean that the advantages of satellite broadband are available to most Australians. The speed and reliability as well as the breadth of coverage of satellite broadband make it a choice well worth considering.
