How to use the satellite dish

This portable satellite device can be easily set-up. The terminal is light and buoyant to bring and transport.  When you are at your desired location, the GPS sensors in the terminals will indicate your exact location. The software in the device will point out the directions. All you have to do after is angle the sensor to the pointed direction. Now, you have set up your prepaid satellite internet.

Immediately after your terminal is connected to the satellite, you can connect to the internet. You can have a fast internet speed, depending on the model of your satellite. In most cases, the speed of this kind of internet connection is faster that your home-based dial-up. The satellite terminal will be the transmitter of data – both in sending and receiving. The terminal is comparable to your cable or DSL modem. To start with your internet job, you just connect the satellite’s terminal to your laptop. You can use Ethernet, Bluetooth, USB or Wifi.

As for the coverage of your prepaid satellite internet, you can have RBGAN (Regional Broadband Global Area Network) or BGAN (Broadband global Area Network). BGAN has a wider coverage – the whole of Eastern and Western Hemispheres. The RBGAN works on the areas where BGAN does except for North and Central America. There is still another network – Thuruya DSL – which are used in Africa, Europe, Middle East and Asia.

Prepaid satellite internet gives you all the benefits expected from a broadband. The difference is on the source of signals. And this difference accounts for the speed.
