Is Satellite Internet right for you?


With so many options for high-speed Internet out there, how can you be sure that satellite Internet is the right one for you? There are several factors to consider before making the plunge for high-speed Internet by satellite service.

  1. 1

    Are you tired of dial-up service? Dial-up service is fine for those who are budget-minded and very light Internet users. However, dial-up service can often become tedious, as users have to wait up to several minutes at a time to logon for simple tasks like checking email, weather, directions and so on, not to mention dropped connections and tied up phone lines.

  2. 2

    Does Internet speed matter to you? For many going from dial-up service to high-speed satellite service can be a revelation. There is a noticeable time difference in everyday activities like checking your favorite websites, sending emails, and loading photos.

  3. 3

    How much are you willing to spend? For very bare-bones and basic Internet use, dial-up represents the lowest part of the expense spectrum. However, for those that are willing to spend a little more per month - high-speed Internet by Satellite offers a faster, more reliable experience.

  4. 4

    Are you in a rural location? For those who live in rural regions, the local infrastructure may not support broadband options like cable, DSL, or fiber optics services. Major satellite Internet providers offer services throughout the contiguous United States, giving many people the opportunity to experience high-speed Internet at a reasonable price.

  5. 5

    Are you looking for a mobile high-speed Internet solution? For those who are looking for mobile high-speed Internet solution, satellite Internet might be the best way to go. Though satellite Internet services are more readily available for those in fixed locations, most major providers will consult with customers on arranging the best plan for a mobile set-up.
