What is Satellite Internet?

Satellite internet is a wireless connection that involves 3 satellite dishes; one at the internet service providers hub, one in space and one attached to your property. In addition to the satellite dish you also need a modem and cables running to and from the dish to your modem.

The only reason why you might use satellite internet is if you live in an area where other internet options such as fibre or DSL isn’t available. If you’re on dialup then satellite internet will be an “upgrade” in the sense that satellite internet is considerably faster.

Satellite internet is a great option if you want to ensure 24/7 uptime in your virtual processes. If you have an existing business internet connection, we can set your satellite connection up as a fail over to keep your business connected in the event that your primary internet connection goes down.
