If there’s one silver lining to take away from the pandemic, it may be the increase of companies and individuals using a work-from-home arrangement. Working from home has many benefits, including the lack of commute, staying close to family and not having to put on real pants! But is it possible to work from home with a satellite internet connection?
One of the requirements for working from home is reliable, fast internet service. You will not only need fast download speeds to get files, browse the web and watch videos, but you will need fast upload speeds to use videoconferencing and cloud servers.
There are many different kinds of internet connections in San Bernardino County, CA, and HughesNet installation is one of the top options for satellite internet. Here is more information about the different kinds of internet connections for working from home.
The same cable lines that bring you hundreds of channels on TV can also bring you internet service. These are high-speed lines that are often sold in a bundle with cable TV packages. One downside of cable internet is that it can get slow if many users are on at the same time. This can be true of a general area of service, not just users in the same household.
The fastest internet service available today is fiber internet service, which is delivered through fiber-optic cable. It is capable of 1GB per second speed (that’s 1,000 Mb), upload and download. The limitation here, however, is that fiber-optic cables are not installed in many places just yet, and, therefore, this service may not be available in your area.
Before these two types of internet service came about there was DSL, which stands for digital subscriber line. This is a connection that uses a phone line to provide internet access but does so in a way that’s much faster than old dial-up connections. This is still used today, and it is usually available anywhere that landline phone service is available.
Satellite internet is a truly wireless option. This is different from fiber, DSL or cable internet in that it does not rely on underground or aboveground physical connections. Satellite internet is delivered wirelessly to the receiver in a building from satellites in space. The only wires you will need here are to connect the receiver to a wireless modem or to hardwire an ethernet connection to your computer.
The speeds with satellite internet are almost always fast enough for any type of home office setup. Another plus of satellite internet is that it can be a great option for rural areas where cable, fiber or DSL lines are nonexistent.
