It's safe to say the internet has become a vital component of everyday life. From checking Facebook to online banking, the web is now used for all manner of everyday tasks. However, not everyone is able to enjoy the full benefits of being on the net.
While those of us who have a good broadband service tend to take it for granted, many people across the UK and beyond struggle for connectivity. Here is a rundown of some of the common problems such individuals have to face and a look at how satellite broadband could be the answer.
My internet is slow and unreliable
One of the main broadband problems people run into is having a slow and unreliable connection that cuts out frequently. While this is annoying at the best of times, it can be a real issue for popular activities such as streaming TV and online gaming that require a good level of connectivity.
Satellite broadband can solve this problem by providing speeds of up to 22 Mbps, which is above the UK average of 17.8 Mbps reported by Ofcom - this falls to 11.3 Mbps in rural areas.
Fast broadband is not available in my area
An increasing number of people are now unlocking the benefits of the web through high-speed fibre optic connections. However, this technology is time consuming and expensive to install, meaning telecoms providers will not provide it in areas where it is not deemed commercially viable. Living in one of these 'not spots' can be a real pain.
Satellite broadband bypasses this issue. All it needs to deliver high-speed internet access is a small satellite dish and modem, meaning it can be installed anywhere, be it an isolated farm or city centre apartment.
I need faster broadband now
The government is currently working to roll out super-fast broadband to at least 90 per cent of the UK. However, in some areas this is not expected to happen for several years. Satellite broadband is available now and the installation process takes no longer than a few hours, meaning people can be enjoying a fast and reliable connection within a couple of weeks of placing an order.
My family all want to go online at the same time
The fast speeds provided by satellite broadband mean it's possible for the internet to be used effectivley by more than one device at once. Connect the modem to a wireless router and a reliable connection will be available all around the house.

I don't want to pay for a broadband service that exceeds my requirements
Choosing a broadband package can be confusing for the uninitiated and it's easy to end up paying over the odds for a service you don't really need. Here at Avonline we provide a number of satellite broadband options and have a package to suit all requirements and budgets.
