Satellites deliver global broadband connectivity
With millions of customers, most people understand how satellite TV works – a small dish receives TV signals from a satellite into a box in their house. Satellite broadband is very similar in that it receives information through a small dish and transfers the information via a cable connected to a modem in your house. The dish is also used to send out information to the satellite so giving you a fast interactive broadband connection. Today satellite broadband is completely comparable with DSL broadband in terms of both performance and cost, with commercial offerings of 20 Mbps often with triple play (internet, TV and voice with one connection).
