There are many Sunday afternoons where I find it very relaxing to sit in front on the TV and watch a footbal game. On rainy days, while watching television from the comfort of your home, the picture quality with satellite reception, can be an issue. The picture on your television starts to scramble to the point that it is not watchable. This is called "rain fade".
Rain fade problems are not just unique to satellite TV. While surfing the web with satellite Internet service, rain fade can cause your connection to go down. Rain fade happens when the satellite signal is interrupted by small droplets of rain, snow or even heavy cloud cover. While this is only a temporary situation, it always seems to occur at the worst times - while you are watching your favorite TV show or downloading important files. Because of rain fade, satellite has been considered disadvantageous to cable for television or the Internet. That's just fine if you live in the city and have a choice. But most rural areas are restricted to just dial up Internet access. In these areas satellite Internet service is still your only other option.
One way satellite Internet service is the answer to this problem. By deploying a system known as a terrestrial/satellite hybrid network, one way satellite Internet service providers deliver broadband speed downloads without the annoying interruptions of rain fade. Because a two-way home satellite dish system do not have the power (only 2 watts) to send an unhindered signal in a storm, one way satellite Internet systems send requests (uploads) along more reliable telephone lines. They beam the data from a huge 18 ft. dish to the orbiting satellite using a much more powerful (200 watt) transmitter. The satellite then sends (downloads) web pages to the receiving home dish (about 30" wide) at broadband speed.
Because uploads are generally very tiny packets of data, this entire process takes less than one second. The orbiting satellite is powered by rechargeable solar fuel cells that convert high intensity sunlight into electrical energy. Covering the entire United States, the satellite relays a powerful, uninterrupted beam back to earth. Such a beam is not as easily scattered by rain fall, which enables you to enjoy continual satellite Internet service without rain fade.
So the next time you sit down at your computer to leisurely surf the net or to download important files, check out the reliability and speed that one way satellite Internet Service can provide for you. You will enjoy the browsing speed you are looking for without breaking your budget.Tags: United States, Advantages, Internet, satellite, rain
