What are the advantages and disadvantage of satellite broadband service?
The most unique aspect of satellite broadband service is its almost universal availability. It is available in areas of the country that are not wired for telephone service, cable service or even electricity. The service is also portable. It is possible to move your installation from one place to another, regardless of where you live in the United States. The biggest disadvantage of satellite broadband service is generally its price. Due to the limited bandwidth that is currently available via satellite, rates can be higher than with DSL or cable modem service. There may also be a substantial up-front cost for satellite transmission and reception equipment. These prices are always included in your ShopforDSL.com quotation, so that you can make an "apples to apples" comparison against competing technologies.
