Satellite internet via direct two-way customer premise terminals is technically possible throughout Asia following a maturing of the technology and building of teleport hub dishes by satellite internet service providers.

Fast web downloads, email, ftp file transfers and streaming video and audio are achieved with burst rate bit speeds of 1 - 10 Mbit/s, using a share of a high bandwidth connection from a large hub station with a rate of up to 65 Mbit/s.

Satellite internet capacity is generally  shared.

Services for home-office have higher sharing ratios, but are much lower cost than services for business users, where dedicated or low ratio sharing is the rule.

Service providers have tariff options for various "up to" service bit rates and download amounts. Email and internet web browsing are the usual intended use. If you need substantial data transfers or real time two way video or VoIP ask about higher price options.

Special quality of service controls and advanced proprietary TCP/IP compression give much faster broadband internet downloads compared with unprocessed feeds.  The new HX VSAT hub will have adaptive uplink and downlink (DVB-S2) carriers so as to adjust and maximise traffic throughput according to dish size and weather conditions.  During clear sky capacity will improve and during periods of very heavy rain will not fail but will back down to a reliable, but slower rate.

The setting up and control of 2 way satellite internet terminals is controlled from the provider so any problem sites can be switched off remotely until a technician attends. Also, the satellite internet equipment design and frequency bands used comply to international inter-system co-ordination and regulatory "type approval" for general use so that operation does not cause unacceptable interference to other services or continue to require individual satellite internet licence. Non-approved terminals continue to require an individual licence.
