HughesNet is one of the nation’s leading providers of satellite internet service, and we are pleased to connect our customers in San Bernardino County with that service. But what exactly gives satellite internet some advantages over cable and DSL?
Here are just a few examples of some of the benefits that come with satellite internet for homes and small businesses. Contact our team of HughesNet installers in San Bernardino County to learn more about the various advantages of this service!
Easy to use
Satellite internet is quite easy to operate. A technician will come out to your home to install the dish on your property, though if you already use satellite television, your dish will already be in place. The computer still connects to the internet in the same way it did before—it’s just coming through satellite rather than cable. Keep in mind that you’re going to need to have a clear view of the southern sky for the dish to properly work.
Use it anywhere
Satellite internet will be able to reach you no matter where you live, because your dish is connected to satellites in geostationary orbit. Your connection to the internet does not rely on the use of phone lines or cables, which means if you’re in a rural or remote area, you don’t have to worry about those challenges that can make it difficult or expensive for you to get internet. All you need is a dish that has a clear, unobstructed view of the southern sky, and you’ll be able to get reliable internet service no matter where you are.
This is a feature that is beneficial with cable internet connections as well, but you are able to benefit from an always-on connection when you use satellite internet. You don’t have to start up a modem like you do with dial-up, and you don’t have to worry about tying up your phone line. It’s also worth noting that the connection speed you get with satellite internet cannot be affected by any issues associated with your cables or phone lines.
As the technology associated with satellite internet has advanced over the years, so too has its speed capabilities. Satellite internet speeds are typically about nine or 10 times what you’d get from a dial-up connection, and comparable to or faster than some cable connections. The downside of satellite internet used to be its speed, but this is no longer the case—you’ll get fast, reliable internet with your connection every time you use it.
Connect multiple devices
Satellite internet makes it easy to connect multiple devices to your home or office network. You’ll have your hub computer, but you’ll also be able to access the internet wirelessly with other devices. Given how many devices people have around the home that connect to the internet these days, this easy connection is important and beneficial.
