Fredonia, NY (PressExposure) June 30, 2008 -- HughesNet has always been the leader in the off the grid broadband satellite internet access market. They now have taken this one step further in switching to the Ka-band as well as ratcheting up their speeds without raising the price. The new Ka platform is a beginning step in competing with the traditional internet providers like DSL and cable. Satellite Internet still has a few minor limitations, such as latency, but outside of the DSL and cable markets there is no other legitimate true broadband provider. While there is much debate about other wireless technologies like WIMAX and cellular cards, these delivery platforms can have severe end user limitations. In simple terms. satellite internet locks on a satellite and is always fixed, hence delivering a constant reliable stream. Other wireless technologies, as mentioned, are always searching for the signal, much like your cell phone has to. That is why cell phone quality varies from location to location and even varies at your fixed location.
