SKY CONNECT BUSINESS BROADBAND
Most people understand how Sky TV works – a small dish receives TV signals from a satellite into a box in their house. Satellite broadband is very similar in that it receives information to a small dish and transfers the information via a cable connected to a modem in your office
Our satellite business broadband also sends out information to the satellite so you have a fast two-way broadband connection
Rather than use an underground copper/fibre network like BT, satellite broadband operates by sending and receiving your business broadband signal to a satellite about 22,000 miles into space. Because the satellite sits so high up it can provide equal quality of coverage to every home or business in its footprint. That’s why the satellite broadband services we offer are available across the whole of Europe.
Broadband is broadband
When you are using broadband in your office, what’s going on outside is irrelevant. In much the same way as the broadband using copper or fibre is buried and out of sight, the satellite broadband signal is similarly invisible.
Just like you take your mobile telephone for granted, as a service used by millions of customers across the world, you’ll quickly take your satellite broadband for granted. In no time at all, you’ll wonder how you ever managed before you had satellite broadband installed – in fact – just like your mobile phone!
From email to video-conferencing and everything in-between
Because your broadband signal does travel to and from the satellite, some internet applications work differently over satellite than they do on a copper/fibre network. Typically the more data being sent either way, the better the system performs. Hence latency has the least impact on applications like file downloading (eg. films, photos etc) and streaming but these applications do use data allowances very quickly. The service even works well with video conferencing and our Cobalt Cloud telephone system.
