What is Wireless or Satellite Broadband?

Just as the name suggests, this technology involves using a satellite dish to gain access to the internet. You can have a dish and transmitter installed at your home or business premises, which connects wirelessly to satellites in space to provide you with a broadband internet connection on the ground. It is very similar to how your satellite television works. But instead of just receiving information, you can send and upload it as you wish.

How does this differ from traditional wired options?

The main difference between satellite broadband and other types is that there are no wires or cables involved. Hence, it is not known as a traditional wired broadband option. There is no need for a landline either, which most of the big corporations like BT force customers to have unnecessarily. Wave offer the latest VoIP technology for making calls, read more about this here. If you do not have access to fast wired broadband services in your area, satellite broadband is the best option to get you online. In particular, this applies to rural areas of the country and if you live somewhere that is classed as remote. Alternative broadband like this is growing in popularity due to the variety of benefits that it can offer homeowners and business owners.

What are the benefits of Satellite Broadband?

When you choose wireless satellite broadband over other options, you can look forward to many advantages. In particular, if you live somewhere that is rural or far away from bustling cities, you may find it very irritating and unproductive when you have slow internet access. often the wires from the exchange are old and damaged, which can affect the speeds you receive. Perhaps you do not receive any broadband options at all where you live or work.

Who can benefit from Wave Internet?

The great thing about satellite broadband is there is practically nowhere in the North West that cannot receive internet access. It offers endless accessibility compared to DSL, cable or fibre broadband options. Instead of spending time waiting for webpages to load, emails to refresh or videos to buffer, you can enjoy fast, easy broadband when you need it. No area is too remote for satellite broadband from Wave Internet as high-speed internet is beamed from our bases.

Due to the type of broadband, lots of different businesses can benefit, who often have issues with using the big corporations and wired networks. Companies such as Construction Sites, Schools, leisure parks and housing developments. many of these have temporary sites or a need for large network capability.

When it comes to upload and download speeds, Wave’s broadband is very impressive; for example, Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) broadband can be slow if you are trying to complete large backup services or even if you are trying to watch HD videos. These tasks are no problem for satellite, which can offer download speeds of 1 to 200 MBPS, upload speeds of 1 to 4 MBPS, and can be up to 10 times faster than DSL broadband.

Fibre-optic broadband is probably an option that you see a lot on television or advertised online. It claims to be reliable, fast and easy to install for homes and businesses, but it is often not available in rural areas, or if it is, it is at a very high cost that may not suit your budget.

The best option for your home or business is satellite broadband instead. This is a more affordable option and can always work in remote areas; you do not have to wait for a long time for installation or cables to go down in your area. It all works by satellite and as long as you have a clear line to a Wave Internet mast, you are good to go.
