According to internet and tech analyst, Point Topic, satellite broadband connections are on the rise thanks to vast improvements in the sector.
This is thanks to the coming of newer, faster and more reliable Ka-Band satellite services which allow satellite ISPs to provide much more attractive products to consumers worldwide.
PointTopic commented on the findings:
”The launch of the Ka band satellites in America and Europe is also making an impact.
The step change in bandwidths and costs have moved the space-based technology closer to the market average for consumers and they are voting with their feet.”
At the moment satellite broadband technology accounts for only 2 per cent of all internet connections, however industry insiders have already reported seeing growth in this sector, both in consumer uptake and product versatility.
Broadbandwatcher would like to remind you that satellite broadband is currently viewed as the only option which can ensure that those residing in rural and extremely isolated locations are able to go online.
There are more than 600m satellite broadband subscribers worldwide, a number which is sure to keep growing as long as the prices keep on dropping.
