WHY SATELLITE TERMINALS?
Cable Internet may be reliable if you live in a densely populated urban area, but if you don’t, you can find your Internet options incredibly limited. If your cable connection is regularly interrupted you can expect to experience the same with your Internet connection. Satellite Internet terminals provide an alternative for people who live off the grid, or who are hoping to get Internet that will go with them wherever their adventures may take them. If your adventures take you beyond the reach of cellular services, your satellite Internet will keep you connected. Unlike cable Internet, satellite Internet is available almost anywhere in the world. This is because while cable Internet relies on a physical cable, satellite Internet is provided through a signal transmitted from an Internet provider on land to a satellite and then from that satellite to your terminal. Just as with satellite television, your Internet will work best when the terminal has a clear line to the southern sky. And while Internet speed is slower with satellite it would only affect extremely high volume activities, such as gaming.
