Satellite Internet for remote areas

If you leave in a remote area, you may not have too many options for internet access and high speed internet may not be available in your area. Rather than getting a dial-up service, you should definitely consider Satellite Internet service.

As the name says, satellite internet is available via satellites, but rather than a slow connection like dial-up, it offers fast speeds comparable to DSL, as fast as 2mbps downloads. If you compare this to dial-up while downloading a 1MB video clip, it would take dial up 56K connection to download at about 2.5 minutes, while the satellite will take 4 seconds.

We looked around online to see who had the best deals on satellite internet and the best one we found was satellitestarinternet.com. Their service starts at $39/month with no upfront fees and zero installation fees.
