Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) February 4, 2010 -–
Residents of rural America were trapped by slow Internet speeds for years. In areas that couldn’t access DSL and Cable, dial-up Internet was the only option. It not only slowed online activities, it tied up phone lines, too. The arrival of satellite Internet brought much-needed relief. Available virtually everywhere in the United States, satellite Internet delivers high-speed internet access to even the most rural towns. Satellite Star Internet, an authorized dealer for HughesNet™ – the leader in satellite Internet service – explores the three areas where satellite Internet is benefiting rural America most.
Small Business Success – Before the availability of satellite Internet, it was nearly impossible for small businesses to keep up with the competition. Small tasks like sending e-mails and communicating with customers were a challenge. Satellite Internet not only delivers high-speed Internet that is up to 50 times faster than dial-up, it gives users one of the most secure connections available. This means business transactions not only happen fast, they happen privately. The number of businesses using satellite Internet has boomed over the last few years, as keeping up in the marketplace became more difficult than ever.
Home Schooling – In rural America, home schooling is sometimes the best option for a good education. Schools are often too far away and good schooling options aren’t as readily available. Satellite Internet has made the home school process much easier for instructors and parents. Kids can work on homework and submit online assignments via high-speed Internet connections. More importantly, high-speed satellite Internet gives them easy access for researching colleges and universities online. While the idea of applying to schools online with dial-up seems like a daunting task, satellite Internet makes it a much quicker process.
Vacationers – For the many Americans who own or rent vacation homes in small towns, leaving town doesn’t mean losing your connection. Satellite Internet delivers high-speed Internet to these rural areas and also offers some flexible options. Customers have the ability to put service on temporary hold, so they don’t get charged for the time they aren’t using the service.
From everyday business activities to summertime Internet use, satellite Internet is providing relief to people in small towns all across the U.S.
