Satellite Internet Service Helps Rural Communities Pick Up Speed

Share Article

As the need for high-speed internet grows, satellite internet offers an affordable solution.

As these services expand, more people are getting the fast internet access they need.

U.S. residents in rural areas are facing a growing problem - dial-up internet is too slow and many don't have access to cable or DSL. The solution is satellite internet, which delivers the internet at download speeds up to 30 times faster than dial-up and is available where cable and DSL aren't. Companies like WildBlueDeals, an authorized dealer for WildBlue Communications, can help. WildBlue is the leader in high speed satellite internet accessible to rural communities in nearly every corner of the country.

The U.S. government has recognized the need for broadband access in rural communities. The economic stimulus package recently passed by Congress allocated around $7 billion towards bringing high-speed broadband access to rural areas of the country. The expansion of satellite internet will make broadband access easy and affordable for the millions of Americans who are unable to get high speed internet.* Unlike DSL and cable, satellite internet is available virtually everywhere.

"It's clear a growing number of Americans needs access to high speed internet. Satellite internet is an excellent solution for areas where DSL isn't an option and dial-up is too slow," said John Hererro, Vice President of WildBlueDeals. "As these services expand, more people are getting the fast internet access they need."

Offering file transfer speeds up to 30 times faster than dial-up, a satellite connection allows people to download large files like photos and music in minutes rather than hours. Satellite internet is also bringing relief to struggling small business owners and people who build second homes in rural areas.

High speed satellite internet is easily installed in most homes. Professional installers mount a mini satellite dish on the roof, outside wall, or, for a small cost, a pole in the ground. A cable from the dish connects to a satellite modem, which connects to the residence's computer via an Ethernet connection.
