There’s an old saying that the only thing worse than having no internet is having slow or unreliable internet. It’s frustrating, it’s stressful, and it prevents you from doing all the things you want to do online. Face it, modern society is based on everyone having a strong, stable, and fast internet connection.
Unfortunately, many areas don’t have the internet services they need. This is especially true in rural communities. In these situations, the problem isn’t just frustrating, it is also life-altering. For instance, slow or limited internet access in rural areas puts students at a disadvantage. This affects their grades, their social lives, and potentially their futures. If you’re not able to get the grades you need because you can’t view the lessons or you connect to a call, you won’t be able to achieve your academic goals.
Rural internet issues also affect the workplace. In a world of virtual meetings and streaming video, not having a strong and stable internet connection can negatively affect your entire career. These limitations make it nearly impossible to conduct business today, so many organizations in rural areas find themselves struggling to keep up with their competition.
So, what can you do?
For many, the answer is Starlink. Oppuous is proud to now offer Starlink to our customers.
Today, many rural areas depend on traditional satellite internet services that use geostationary satellites that are quite far away from Earth. This offers a connection, but one that typically comes with high latency. As a result, you can’t reliably stream video, play games, make video calls, or conduct modern business.
On the other hand, the Starlink satellite internet system connects to low-Earth orbiting satellites. This difference in distance means it can deliver fast and consistent internet to almost anywhere on the planet.
What is Starlink?
Starlink is a satellite internet service that is designed to eliminate the problems associated with traditional satellite internet. As mentioned, many traditional satellite internet services connect to geostationary satellites that can be more than 20,000 miles away from Earth. This means it takes a very long time for data to move between the user and the satellite. And that means latency.
On the other hand, Starlink’s revolutionary service uses thousands of satellites that orbit much closer to Earth. These satellites cover the entire globe and they’re less than 350 miles away. That means faster speeds, more consistent connections, and the ability to use the internet the way you need to.
In short, if you’ve always wished that your internet was faster, more reliable, more stable, and just plain better than it is today, Starlink is the right choice for you.
Why Do I Want Starlink?
There’s nothing more frustrating than an internet connection that doesn’t work the way you want it to. When you’re streaming a video, playing a game, or having a virtual meeting, the last thing you want is for your connection to struggle, buffer, or freeze.
With Starlink, this isn’t a problem. You can stop worrying about whether your internet connection is good enough and start doing exactly what you want online, exactly when you want to do it.
Internet users in rural areas have gone from using their phones to connect to the internet and borrowing DVDs from the library to connecting seamlessly, streaming video, and living the online life they’ve always dreamed of just by choosing Starlink. It jumps you straight into the 21st century.
In short, Starlink solves a problem that rural areas have been dealing with for decades. In these less populated areas, fast broadband internet isn’t lucrative for most internet providers. This has historically meant slow and inconsistent speeds, high costs, and even download caps that make modern life difficult. If you’re dealing with these problems, Starlink is the answer. You can use as much internet as you want, have a fast connection, and have faith that it will work, even during challenging weather conditions like rain or fog.
