Dreaming of watching the World Cup with superfast internet within the comfort of your home?
Well, your dreams are soon going to become a reality. If you live or work out in the middle of nowhere, you can now get a high-speed internet connection there too. So, you don’t need to move to the city for a stable internet connection because your satellite internet connection gives you access wherever you are.
Satellite Internet, How Does It Work?
Satellite internet is the best internet solution for those living in rural areas where dial-up internet options are not available.
Satellite broadband uses geostationary satellites – that always stays in the same position above the Earth by matching the Earth’s rotation velocity as it orbits the planet. Satellite broadband does not require telephone lines or cables to deliver an internet signal directly to your home. However, for this, there must be a two-way data communication between a satellite dish attached to the roof of your home and our Freedomsat hub here on Earth.
For instance, you want to watch the World Cup using the internet on your computer. What you do is click on a web link for live streaming, this transmits a signal to the satellite. The satellite then relays the signal to our hub, which is then transferred back to the satellite. The data gathered, is then sent to your dish for the modem to load the site on your computer. This entire process takes only a few seconds.
Satellite internet sure is, a pretty cool way to access the internet that’s beamed from outer space. However, with widespread availability and innovative growth, satellite internet gets much cooler than that.
