The connectivity offered is permanent and you do not have to worry about loss of connectivity at any time. Thanks to the high speeds and large bandwidth, downloading large files, getting instant email messages to your inbox, online streaming of multimedia content can all be done with unbelievable swiftness,which you may been missing in your traditional dial up connection.
Being independent from your telephone system, you never have to worry about missing an important call or receiving shocking telephone bills. Our installation charges stand at just $1,350 and usage charges are flexible, depending on customer requirements for bandwidth speeds and usage..When compared with dial-up connectivity and the other internet connections available in the market, our VSAT based internet access provides unlimited connectivity.
You no longer need to invest large sums of money on expensive hardware, as VSAT based internet access only requires a 1.4meter dish, LNB and modem to be located in your premises, which is then connected to an indoor unit that provides you with a two-way internet access mechanism. When compared with terrestrial broadband access rates, our plans are conveniently priced and you even have flexible monthly plans that can be upgraded as per your need. Since the service does not have any link to your terrestrial network it can operate independently and support multiple PC’s in your local network.

Customer Premises EquipmentWhen we consider customer premises equipment, the VSAT antenna which operates in either the C or Ku Frequency band i.e. in the range of 14.0-14.5 GHz, would have a typical length of around 1.2 metres. The antenna should be mounted in such a way that it can have a clear view of the sky and over to the satellite hovering over the equator. This pretty much sums up the external equipment list. A modem is provided for internal connectivity at a conventional distance from the antenna to ensure optimum performance. As per globally accepted standards, the cable length from the antenna to the indoor unit is in between 5 to 10 metres and it would be surface mounted.
Customer InterfaceOnce the equipments are in place, users of our internet service need to have an interface through which they can connect their machines to the indoor unit. You can simply use a standard 10/100 Base T Ethernet RJ45 connection on the back side of the indoor unit to enable connectivity. This set up allows you to directly connect your PC or even a Local Area Network comprising a number of computers to the internet via the VSAT internet access provided by NetOne Communications.As with any internet access mechanism our VSAT based broadband services offer direct connectivity to the internet and hence it is advisable to have a firewall installed on your PC or LAN to avoid intrusions by malicious software from the internet.
