Satellite Internet is one of the fastest growing Broadband Internet solutions in the United States. There are two main Satellite Internet Service Providers for residential customers, HughesNet and WildBlue. When compared side by side, Wild Blue, with its lower upfront and monthly costs and aggressive promotions, is hands down the elite choice for Satellite Internet Access.
Satellite Internet Connections offer the same quality of Internet as DSL and cable companies, but are available to customers in rural areas, where cable and DSL do not venture and dialup ISP's are the only option. With Satellite Internet Companies competing for customers that cable and DSL don't want, the promotions have been getting more and more aggressive, which is good news for consumers.
For rural Internet users who have been forced to endure slow dialup ISP's and as a result have been deprived of all the Internet can offer, such as, fast access to information, quick downloads and instant email deliveries, Satellite Internet could be just the thing to get you back in the game. The benefits for farmers, ranchers or any other rural resident just looking to bank, shop, keep in touch with family and friends, or even go to school online can be extremly valuable and a great time saver.
Satellite Internet companies like WildBlue and HughesNet, offer a service that is always on, fast and best of all doesn't require a phone line. The installation is minimal, just a satellite dish mounted to your physical property or placed on a pole in your yard, a coaxial cable run from the satellite dish to your satellite internet modem, which connects to your computer through a USB port and an Ethernet cable - That's it. Satellite Internet providers like Wild Blue will actually send out an installer to get you hooked up and in most cases it's free.
Chances are if you are saddled with a dialup ISP, because the cable company won't come out, you are probably a little television challenged as well. If your Broadband Internet connection is going to be provided via satellite, your television may as well be to. Like Satellite Internet, Satellite TV promotions are more aggressive than ever as companies like DIRECTV and Dish Network attempt to provide service to customers ignored by the cable companies. Dish Network is the better overall value in my opinion, providing lower monthly costs, larger programming options, award winning satellite tv receivers and the most high-definition channels of all the satellite tv providers.
Imagine Satellite Internet and TV from dialup and off air antenna. Living in rural areas provides families with enviable quality of living, not to mention peacful settings. That shouldn't mean that you are isolated from the technology that makes everyone elses lives easier and more enjoyable. Now, thanks to companies like Wild Blue and Dish Network you can have the best of both worlds.
