Satellite broadband and email access connection via direct two-way customer terminals is possible in North America, the USA, Caribbean and South America following the building of VSAT teleport hubs.

In recent years, new Ka band service, using small spot beams offer attractive pricing with smaller dish, for home and small office user.

Fast web downloads, email, ftp file transfers and streaming video and audio are achieved with bit speeds often of several Mbit/s, using a share of a high bandwidth connection from a large hub station with a rate of up to 57 Msps, like digital sat TV DVB-S or DVB-S2 signal.

Two way capacity is normally shared. Services for SOHO users have higher sharing ratios, but are much lower cost than services for business users or internet cafés, where dedicated or low ratio sharing is the rule. To assure fair sharing, Gbytes quotas are normally applied.

Service providers have tariffs for various peak service bit rates and download amounts per month. Email and internet web browsing are the usual intended use. For applications requiring substantial uploading of data or for video or voice VoIP ask about higher price options and feasibility.

Starlink is a low earth orbit system (LEO) comprising a constellation of satellites at around 550 km. altitude. As a customer you will 'see' them moving across the sky, rising up, going across the sky and then setting. At any time there should be at least one visible.

The customer antenna is a flat white structure with many tiny radiating elements forming a Ku band phased array. The resulting beam moves electronically and finds and follows the satellites across the visible sky.

Installation is fully automatic with the antenna setting up its initial physical pointing angle automatically. It is helpful if the antenna has a good wide view of the sky in all directions.

Coverage depends on there being a terrestrial gateway within range or via other adjacent satellites using inter-satelite links.

Please mail me, Eric Johnston, if you have suggestions, additions, comments about this page or comments about the companies featured either above or below. All input is welcome.

Please contribute to my satellite internet forum.  Ask your questions and please offer your advice to help others.

I have written up a 'how satellite broadband works' white pages guide.   A wireless or cable LAN is a way of sharing the VSAT equipment price and monthly download bandwidth costs amongst a number of local users in a star network to provide for cafés, local communities, apartment buildings, shopping malls, hotels, office parks and within cruise ships.

The setting up and management of two-way satellite broadband interactive  (BBI)  return channel system (RCS) terminals (SIT) is done by the provider so any problem VSAT sites can be switched off remotely until a technician attends. Also, the equipment design and frequency bands comply to international regulatory "type approval" for general use so that operation does not cause interference to others or continue to require individual license / licensing.  Non-approved terminals will continue to require individual licensing.
