The best thing about satellite internet is that it is available virtually everywhere in the US. This is the main reason that it continues to be a popular option in rural areas, where wired internet options such as cable and DSL are less common. The biggest downside is, well, it’s slow, it’s expensive, it suffers from latency issues, and providers often expect you to sign a contract that lasts seemingly until the end of time.

If you live in a major city, you likely enjoy reliable high-speed internet that is delivered to your house through a wired connection. However, residents in small towns and rural areas have just as much need for a reliable connection. These days, internet access isn’t an optional extra. From job searches to staying in touch with family, from booking a holiday to learning new skills, to finding love to finding customers, the internet is essential for participation in the modern world.

This is where satellite internet comes in. For all its shortcomings, it can get you online no matter where you are.

Fortunately, satellite internet has improved exponentially since its debut more than twenty years ago. There are a number of pros and cons to consider (as these include a few technical terms, you can check out our glossary of relevant jargon at the bottom of this article).

The Pros and Cons of Satellite Internet


  • Available nearly everywhere
  • Broadband-level speeds possible
  • Cost effective compared to mobile hotspots
  • Often faster than promised
  • Quick recovery post-disaster


  • Expensive
  • Prohibitive Data caps
  • High latency
  • Slower than cable and fiber
  • Vulnerable to bad weather
  • Won’t support a VPN
  • Long minimum contracts


Who Is Satellite Internet Ideal for?

While satellite internet is by far the best (and only) option in some locations, it may not be right for you. It’s time to go into why satellite internet can be the right — or wrong — option for your household.

Rural consumers: The best candidates for satellite internet are households in rural and remote areas. These places often have limited or no cable connections, meaning access to wired internet is poor. Mobile reception may also be patchy, eliminating the option to use a hotspot.

Consumers in regions prone to natural disasters: Earthquakes and hurricanes can sever cable connections, which takes time to fix. Meanwhile, as long as you have an intact satellite dish, you should be able to stay connected with satellite service.

Satellite Internet’s Greatest Strength: Wide Availability

The strongest selling point for satellite internet is that it works everywhere. If you need a connection, and you almost certainly do, then satellite internet knocks the socks off dial-up and mobile hotspots. For all its faults, satellite internet meets you where you are.

Speeds have also improved greatly in recent years. Some providers already offer 25Mbps, with further large increases coming in the next couple of years. Indeed, the FCC reports that 90% of providers deliver up to 140% of the speeds they promise, even at peak hours. This means that you often get more than you paid for.

Finally, it is worth considering that even if you have the option of wired internet, while satellite internet may be a less reliable choice day to day, it can be more resilient and quicker to recover during natural disasters.



Where Did Satellite Internet Come From?

It all started in 1993 when the FCC first approved satellites for this purpose. At the time, most households weren’t online, so the slow download speeds offered by satellite internet were didn’t matter as much. By the late 1990’s, however, wired internet had leapfrogged over satellite internet in terms of access, speed, reliability, and bang for your buck.

The 1997 launch of the Iridium satellite network took place in hopes of rebalancing the equation, but they could only offer 0.01Mbps, and greatly overestimated the market for such a service. As everyone in major cities and towns began installing DSL lines and cable modems, satellite internet soon became the poor relation of the online world.

However, by 2007, Astra launched satellite internet offering 20Mbps, which was finally an acceptable speed. Still, it took another decade for the cost of the technology to fall sufficiently for a game-changer to arrive on the scene. That game-changer was Hughesnet, which launched a fifth-generation satellite network in 2018 that finally met the FCC’s standard for real broadband.

Satellite Internet Glossary


This is the delay in the delivery of data caused by the distance between the server and the satellite, and the satellite and your house. Also known as “ping”. The lower the latency, the speedier the connection tends to feel overall.


A virtual private network or VPN is a way of hiding your identity online. It obscures your computer’s IP (“internet protocol”) address, which is a unique number that tells servers, “This is Jane’s computer.”


This stands for internet service provider. It means the companies from which you can buy internet connections, such as Hughesnet or Verizon.


This means megabits per second. A bit is a tiny piece of data, and a megabit is a million such pieces. If your internet is slower than 25Mbps, it’s probably going to be unable to cope with many modern streaming services.


This is short for wireless internet, and it’s not to be confused with satellite internet. Wi-fi is all about the way the data gets from the dish or cables in your house to your computer – that is, whether your computer is plugged in or connecting wirelessly. It’s not concerned with how the information reached your house in the first place.


This means Voice Over Internet Protocol. It means a variety of technologies that provide the option of making phone calls over the internet. It can be cheaper than a traditional phone line, but of course, if your internet is cut off, it’s cut off. If you live in a remote area, solely depending on VOIP to stay in touch with the wider world is probably unwise.


A digital subscriber line or DSL is an umbrella term for a number of technologies that permit internet to be provided over the phone, by transmitting data alone existing phone lines. It’s generally slower than cable, though it is improving. However, while DSL uses the phone lines, it’s not the same thing as dial-up, a relatively primitive form of internet provision that not only uses the phone, it hogs the connection for itself, meaning you can’t use that line to make calls while you’re connected. DSL permits you to use the phone and the internet at the same time.


Advantages of satellite internet

So, why would you pick satellite internet? The biggest advantage of satellite is that it’s available to less populated, rural areas that don’t have access to fiber, cable, or DSL internet options. Satellite stands out as a unique, reliable service that caters to a demographic often overlooked by other internet companies in favor of profitability.

Wide availability

The widespread availability of satellite internet is its biggest advantage. In many rural areas, it’s the only internet service type that’s even available. 

According to Statista’s internet usage data, only 65% of the world’s population has access to the internet. But in our modern age, having internet access is a basic necessity. So how do we get that remaining 35% of the world a connection? Building out cable infrastructure for every home in the world would cost billions of dollars. US Telecom estimates that laying fiber optic cable costs approximately $27,000 per mile.

This is where a huge advantage of satellite internet becomes obvious: Satellite internet connectivity is less expensive and a more reasonable solution than laying millions of miles of fiber optic cable, and it’s ideally suited for delivering internet access to rural and hard-to-reach areas.

Closing the digital divide

Satellite is starting to emerge as an extremely important technology for underserved communities that would otherwise lack access to education, jobs, and important communication services. 

The growing availability of satellite internet also sets the stage for innovation in tech, like the advancement of education, healthcare, politics, and emergency communication outside of rural areas. In the future, we hope to see satellite advancements start to close the digital divide by providing access to services such as:

  • Online learning for rural communities worldwide
  • International telemedicine programs
  • Communication during natural disasters

Satellite internet reliability

Okay, so we’ve settled how widely available satellite internet is, but how reliable is it? Well, in general, satellite internet service is just as reliable as cable or fiber internet, as all three options report at least a few outages a year. But satellite internet shows its reliability best in areas prone to natural disasters.

Because it doesn’t have to rely on ground-based infrastructure like cables and towers, which often get destroyed by earthquakes and hurricanes, satellite internet can become a lifeline and enable faster and more effective disaster relief efforts in areas prone to extreme weather events. According to the National Association of State Information Officers, Starlink’s satellite service connected 45,000 people to the internet when Hurricane Ian struck Florida in 2022. 

Disadvantages of satellite internet

Now, let’s get into the not-so-great side of satellite internet. These issues vary by provider since new technology is solving many of the long-standing problems with satellite service, but there are a few generalities we need to cover. Overall, satellite internet consumers report frustrations with latency, pesky data caps, and slow speeds.
