Upgrading To Satellite Internet From Dial-Up: Understanding The New Technology

Until very recently, those living in areas where broadband and DSL didnâ??t reach only had one option for getting online that did not involve a long, drawn-out commute in a car to the nearest town: dial-up. While most people have long since forgotten about using dial-up, especially since the last time they were on a computer with it, email was still a wild new breakthrough, thousands of Americans are still left with no other option for getting online. This is mostly due to the fact of location, with many places that are on the grid for other things, like electricity and phone lines, not yet serviced by internet service providers, or erroneously described as being so when in reality, the signal is unreliable.

With satellite internet an option for those who seek high-speed online connection at a low cost, many people who until now had to rely on dial-up at home are starting to consider making the switch. But whether itâ??s a lack of information about the new technology or simply the fact that they might not understand how itâ??s actually new and fresh, some dial-up users are hesitant to switch. That is why it is so important to understand the new technology and how it is actually better–and reliable–compared to other allegedly solid high-speed options.

The first and biggest plus side to satellite internet is the fact that it literally works anywhere in the entire world. Designed as the first truly global way to be online, dishes can receive the signal from satellites in outer space anywhere, no matter how secluded. This means that you could be living in a canyon in New Mexico, a desert in Australia, or in a medium-size city in middle America and still have the same reliable connection. With speeds at five or six times the rate of dial-up, distance is not a factor when it comes to getting online and staying there with a quick connection. Everything is at practically the same speed rate as those who are surfing the internet with cable or DSL, which means that you can download images, upload files, stream video, and listen to online radio without experiencing interruptions.

There are, however, instances where the signal can cut out if you are using satellite internet, those these interruptions are few and far between. Because the data travels through the air to and from outer space-based satellites, things like extremely heavy precipitation can cause a lag in the transfer of data. Likewise, if you are trying to do things like play image-heavy online video games that require split-second refresh rates, there will most likely be somewhat of a lag. However, it is important to keep these things in perspective. Most people who were once using dial-up will not be needing high-speed internet for gaming, since it was previously impossible anyway. And everyone is used to the cable going out from time to time in a particularly fierce storm, so thereâ??s not much of a difference if the same thing happens with your satellite broadband.

With wildblue internet service, internet becomes out of this world. Consider wild blue satellite internet if you’re considering a switch to satellite.
