Satellite High-speed Internet is the Best Connection for Rural Customers

Rural customers often think they only have two options for Internet: dial-up and DSL. Both, however, have limitations.

Satellite Internet is the best option for rural customers for multiple reasons. It’s better than dial-up because it’s faster and won’t prevent simultaneous phone and Internet usage. It’s available in more areas than DSL. In fact, satellite high-speed Internet from HughesNet is available anywhere in the contiguous United States.1

Satellite high-speed Internet uses high-end technology, but the satellite Internet process itself is fairly simple to understand.

How do people get Internet by satellite?

Internet by satellite – how does it work? It’s a simple process. There are three satellite dishes – one on your house, one in outer space, and one at the Hughes corporate office. When you’re using the Internet, your dish sends a signal to the dish in space, which then relays that signal back to Earth at the Hughes office, and then to your house, all in a fraction of a second.

While your signal travels thousands of miles, Internet by satellite is very fast. It’s much faster than dial-up and isn’t slowed by distance from your provider like DSL.

That’s another benefit of satellite high-speed Internet: it’s not dependent on your phone line or cable line. Instead of waiting days at a time to get service back if your line goes down, there’s no need to worry about that at all! With Internet by satellite, you get something called an “always-on” connection. This means that HughesNet service can’t be interrupted by problems with your phone or cable line, unlike dial-up and DSL.

Satellite Internet access is valuable in this regard for its convenience. With Internet by satellite, you’re always connected – no matter what. See where HughesNet is offered below:
