Satellite internet sends internet signals to and from your home by bouncing them off stationary satellites in the earth’s orbit. With more advanced technology than ever, Viasat can now offer unprecedented rural satellite internet speeds—up to 100 Mbps in some areas. That’s as fast as some cable plans.
Satellite internet has a bit more latency (lag) than traditional internet, because the radio waves carrying your data travel 22K miles to space and back. But latency is measured in milliseconds, so it’s often undetectable. Plus, with the faster speeds now available from Viasat, you can expect better overall internet performance.
Best for: Daily activities like banking, shopping, email, social media, and occassional streaming, depending on your plan speed
