Definitions for "Satellite broadband"
This is a type of broadband connection designed to transmit radio signals directly to, and receive them directly from, telecommunications satellites. They have the advantage of operating in areas where terrestrial cable or wireless networks do not reach. A satellite receiver is required to operate these connections.
Satellite broadband is connectivity provided via a satellite in orbit. This is often extremely expensive and is a last resort for users in extremely remote areas.
Broadband connectivity supplied from by a small satellite dish mounted on or near your building. Two standard coaxial cables connect the satellite dish antenna to the satellite modem, which is connected to your PC through an ethernet (network) port.
