I am new to Satellite Internet.  I am in southeast Iraq and I am looking for a company with reasonable set-up costs and package plans for military.  Does anyone recommend a company?  Anyone not recommend a particular company?  What types of issues can I expect?  As I said, I am new to this type of thing.  Thank you.

Hi Jay,

There are many options available for satellite service.  It sounds as if a shared service would be a suitable for your group.  We service many troops privately on various service levels, depending on the exact network requirements.  Within this service type there are many options and it is not a simple comparison between companies because of the wide range of sharing ratios and network configurations. References will be key to finding the best provider.

That said, each provider will have a different equipment requirement based on your location, data rate needs and planning for future growth.  For instance, we offer ku band service in Iraq on T12.   

Installation is the most difficult part of the process as you can imagine.  It is possible to install yourself depending on your level of knowledge, confidence and mechanical ability.  iDirect has created the most "plug and play" satellite system currently available.  Many tools are available in the program provided.  An experienced installer is always recommended because of the electrical issues as well as the precision required to point the antenna to the correct satellite and to ensure it is optimally peaked and pointed. 

Depending on the base you are currently located we might have a group using our services that might be of assistance if needed.  Of course we also have an amazing team to assist your installation and initialization regardless of the direction you chose. Please feel free to contact me directly to discuss specific questions and/or requirements.
