What is satellite internet?

Satellite internet works as a reliable, “always on” internet connection that doesn't tie up your phone line, so you’re able to talk and surf at the same time. Since satellite internet does not need wires to connect to your house, satellite internet is available to rural areas far from cable's reach.

Comparing satellite internet service providers


Prices will vary based on the provider and plan you select. Typically, packages with faster data speeds (best for streaming and gaming) will come with higher monthly costs. Basic plans at major providers like Exede and HughesNet will often start around the same price point.

Customer service reviews

Check out some online reviews to gauge a provider’s customer service performance. Current customers will often use reviews and online forums to applaud outstanding customer service or sound off when it’s lacking.


Many satellite internet service providers offer plans that come with a contract. Read through the terms of your potential plan carefully to know the details of your service and for how long you’re signing up. If you wish to cancel service later, you may encounter a cancellation fee.


Data speeds

Satellite internet plans feature download and upload speeds to let you know how fast your service will be. Consider speed options and your browsing habits when selecting your plan. The quality of your favorite online activities may dip without compatible data speeds.

Service disruptions

Satellite internet disruptions often occur during extreme weather due to the weakening in signals between your dish and the satellite. You professional installer should mount the dish in a location free of trees and obstructions.

Data caps

Providers offer unlimited data plans with caps, similar to cell phone service. Depending on your plan, providers will cap your data at a certain amount and then slow your speeds for the remainder of the month. The higher your data cap, the longer your speeds stay as fast as you’re used to.

This internet connection type is best for light to moderate internet users. Satellite internet is ideal for those who casually surf for news, media and weather updates or stream movies and music.

Satellite internet works using a satellite orbiting in space to transmit internet signals from your satellite dish to your computer. Your satellite dish sends data to the orbiting satellite, which then relays that data to a dish connected to the internet.

Latency refers to a lag or disruption in your service. To minimize, ensure your satellite dish is properly placed and that there are no trees or buildings obstructing the space between the dish and sky. Also, make sure your router is out in the open and close to where your service is primarily used.
