How do I compare broadband packages?
Try to answer these questions to help you find the right broadband bundle:
- What is the minimum contract period?
- What extra services do you want? Phone, TV or both?
- What broadband speed do you need?
- What is the total monthly cost?
- What download limit would suit you depending on your internet usage?
- Are there any hidden charges or fees for exceeding your download limit?
Can I switch broadband packages?
Yes, switching broadband provider is quick and easy. You could save hundreds of euro by switching to a better suited broadband solution tailored to you.
Remember all broadband providers charge an early termination fee if you cancel during your contract’s minimum term. Some also require you to give 30 days notice to cancel, so you’ll need to do this to ensure you’re not billed for the product after you’ve switched.
This technology is not new, people have been watching satellite TV for decades, but there have been some recent advances to make satellite technology more suitable for connecting you to the internet.
Unlike TV, internet over satellite requires a two-way connection. Users of satellite broadband both send and receive information to and from the satellite. Changes to how the data is packaged and the infrastructure both in space and on the ground, mean that you can now get much faster speeds; up to 50 Mbps over satellite broadband. That’s faster than many wired connections!
Online gaming over a satellite broadband connection is tricky and we do not recommend it. The rapid exchanges of data that many games such as ‘first-person shooter’ or sporting games need to be properly enjoyed present challenges. The time lag involved may lead to frozen screens, and jumpy gameplay.
Congestion can occur when lots of people are using the service all at the same time. The word congestion helps us to understand it as the congestion you face on the road is like the congestion you can face getting online. When lots of people try to access the service at the same time, average speeds decline, just like when lots of drivers are trying to drive along the same stretch of road.
As with other broadband services, average speeds will decline during periods of congestion. Congestion is most likely during peak times. This is 5pm-11pm as well as on weekends and during the school holidays. We’ve collated advice from our technical team on how to get the most out of your data and avoid any slow-down at peak times.
You need a view of the southern Sky because that is where our satellites are. We use geostationary satellites, meaning they orbit the earth 22,000 miles above the equator and move at the same speed as the earth’s rotation. This means they appear stationary from earth. Because they are along the equator, they are to the south of us here in the UK.
