How Exede Satellite Internet Works
You may be wondering just how satellite Internet works, and why satellite Internet providers
can bring high speed Internet to rural areas when big name cable companies cannot. The technology that is used by Exede puts homes throughout the country on a level playing field. They are all roughly 22,500 miles from the ViaSat-1 satellite that is orbiting the earth, a critical component to the delivery of high speed Internet service for those who choose Exede. Cable, fiber and DSL providers are more limited by terrestrial distance and the costs to connect rural homes.
Exede In The Sky
High capacity satellites, like the ViaSat-1 satellite, are used to wirelessly connect homes to the Internet. Such satellites are in geosynchronous orbit with the earth, and deliver information in under a second to users.
Exede at Home
A satellite dish receiver installed on or near your home transmits and receives data to and from your home computer or Internet enabled devices. Exede technicians install the dish on a roof or other high point of your home and position it towards the ViaSat-1 satellite in the southern sky.
A cable runs from the dish to the Exede modem inside your home. Your computer is in turn connected to the modem, or a wireless router is connected to the modem with an Ethernet cable in order to create a wireless network in your home. Our latest innovation is an Exede Wifi modem which saves you from investing in a wireless router.
Delivering the Signal
When you hit enter or click your mouse, you send a signal that travels via your modem to the dish attached to your home and ultimately to our satellite in the sky. The satellite then sends the signal to a large antenna on Earth, which in turn delivers the information to the NOC or Network Operations Center which is connected to Internet. The information requested must then make the return trip. This whole process takes less than 1 second, which for most uses is an imperceptible delay.
Still Better Than The Rest
Despite a trip of tens of thousands of miles for data, high speed satellite Internet is still much faster than the alternatives for rural residents. All Exede plans enjoy the same great speeds: up to 12 Mbps for downloads and up to 5 Mbps for uploads. In comparison, this is 8 times faster than traditional DSL and an impressive 200 times faster than dial-up service speeds.
