Definition Edit

Satellite-based Internet access services are an option for consumers that live in areas where wireline, cable, or terrestrial wireless Internet access is unavailable.

Overview Edit

With a few exceptions, none of the three most widely subscribed satellite-based Internet access services satisfies, however, the Federal Communications Commission’s definition of advanced services, which calls for a minimum transmission speed of in excess of 200 kbps downstream and upstream.[1] Satellite services account for only approximately 0.7% of the total high-speed lines in the United States.[2]

References Edit

  1. Most satellite services provide downstream speeds in excess of 200 kbps. Upstream speeds, with a few exceptions, are slower.
  2. Approximately 79% of satellite high-speed lines are for residential use.
