How It Works

How does Satellite Internet work?

Satellite Internet’s quantum leap

  • Our Internet offers download speeds at 25 Mbps (or more)
  • We beam your Internet signal directly from space, if you can get Satellite TV, you can get our Internet.
  • The FCC’s “Measuring Broadband America” report of U.S. Internet Service Providers found that our Internet is No. 1 at delivering on advertised speeds or better!

WHY IT’S IMPORTANT: The FCC report proves you get the speeds you pay for — and more!


Get to know Off The Grid Internet

There’s a fair amount of high-tech science and innovation behind providing Internet via satellite, but the basics are pretty simple:

  • The Internet signal is transmitted from ground stations up to our satellite.
  • The satellite transmits the Internet signal directly to a small dish mounted on your house (or in your yard).
  • The signal enters your home through a thin cable and connects to a modem with built in wifi, which in turn connects to your computer or other mobile devices.
  • This whole process takes a whopping 1/2 of a second and pages and files load much, much faster! You don’t even notice it’s coming from space.

WHY IT’S IMPORTANT: Since our internet comes from space, you don’t have to deal with antiquated wires and cables, or outdated technology. Quite simply, our Internet technology is state-of-the art.
