Satellite internet is great for people who live in rural areas, allowing them to stay connected even when traditional phone lines and high-speed internet access aren’t available. If you’ve never used satellite internet, however, you might be concerned about whether it can hold up to your streaming, gaming and browsing needs.
Luckily, HughesNet is San Bernardino County’s premier option for satellite internet, and it’s sure to be able to fulfill all your internet needs. No matter where you live in the county, you’ll be able to access high-speed internet for entertainment, work and staying in touch with loved ones. Here’s why HughesNet Gen 5 is better than ever.
How satellite internet works
Satellite internet has a reputation for being slower and less reliable than “wired” internet, like cable, DSL and even dial-up. However, plenty of advances have been made over the last couple decades. Today, satellite internet is on par with other high-speed internet providers.
Your satellite dish is responsible for sending and receiving wireless signals. These signals are bounced to a satellite in space, then sent down to your specific receiver to transmit the data. Contrast this with wired services, which use cables and phone lines to transmit data over long distances—if your town or area isn’t wired for internet, you won’t be able to access it without a satellite connection. Alternatively, you could use dial-up, but that risks incurring long-distance charges.
