With Satellite Internet service no need to keep your phone busy
With a DiRECWAY 2-Way satellite connection, you won't tie up
your primary phone line or need to install an expensive second line
for your Internet connection. Stay connected as long as you like
without worrying about missing important phone calls. No more
waiting for an old-fashioned Internet dial-up connection. Keep calling!
Satellite Internet Connection Product Features
To get connected all you need is a DiRECWAY satellite dish
(typically a 0.74m dish) installed at your home or office so it
faces the southern sky. Coaxial lines connect your dish to a
"satellite modem". This modem is directly connected to
your PC. No phone lines are needed after initial set-up. The
satellite Internet system
is installed and activated by expert installers. Unlike one-way
Internet via satellite, 2-Way DiRECWAY satellite Internet offers download and upload
capabilities straight from the dish. This means that no phone lines
are required to surf the net, or to send important files and emails
to friends, customers and suppliers.

time to let go of that slow phone modem? DiRECWAY satellite Internet
service gives you a
broadband connection, so you can get more excitement out of the
Internet than you ever thought possible - without the wait or
2-Way DiRECWAY service allows users to download Internet content at speeds
of up to 400++ kbps. That's 8 times faster than the average modem.
The DiRECWAY broadband satellite system provides a satellite return channel with upload
speeds rated at up to 128 kbps (50-70Kbps typical). This is
still considerably faster than most modems. You can now download a
2MB file in just 30 to 40 seconds.
Satellite Internet Speed
The satellite communications industry is a mature and stable one. For decades, satellites have been used to transport analog voice and video signals around the globe, providing excellent quality and reliability. Reliability of the actual satellites once placed in operation approaches 100%. Failures have almost always occurred during launch or prior to deployment of services. In addition to voice and video signals, satellites have been successfully used to transport data for many years. Everyone has seen the dishes on top of gas stations and convenience stores that are used for low-speed transactions such as credit card approvals. With the advent of the Internet, satellite technology companies have added broadband IP support making it possible for even the most remote locations to participate in the World Wide Web.
Most legacy broadband satellite solutions have been built by piggybacking IP on top of DVB satellite technology, which was designed for television video. These solutions are inefficient and sluggish, and generally provide poor uplink performance and lack support for applications such as VoIP. New technology from iDirect, developed from the ground up to support IP over satellite, has had the effect of upgrading performance in a manner that is similar to the upgrade from a shared Ethernet hub to a switch. The resulting solution provides enterprise class quality and reliability.
