i-SURF uses Ka Band High Throughput Satellites to deliver our services not Ku Band like DsTV
Ku-band has been around for around 40 years, and has been mainly used by broadcasters and governments because of the high costs involved. It was a great option for these users because it was very reliable, would work literally anywhere and there was a fairly limitless supply of bandwidth in the sky across most countries and oceans. The problem was that for small companies and home users the whole thing was very expensive.
Like most important technology satellite broadband progressed rapidly, and the boffins came up with a way of using a different set of frequencies for satellite communications; those running in the Ka-band spectrum. The cool thing about Ka-band is that it enables the satellite operators to transmit around ten times as much data over the same satellite capacity as Ku-band. Ka band High Throughput satellites are much smaller and cheaper to build than previous satellites, they’re also much much easier to put into space and all this means that for the first time satellite broadband can be made available at a manageable price for consumers and small businesses.
That’s why i-SURF can now offer any home or business the ability to connect to the internet via satellite broadband wherever they are, at a price they can afford.
