Historically on a traditional VSAT service, you would have to forgo a decent bandwidth profile due to both the expense of the bandwidth and the size of the hardware. But that is now less of a concern as LEO technology will offer remote residential, small business and enterprise projects the ability to access high speed internet, with low latency (typically 1/10th that of a VSAT service), small hardware and a reasonable monthly cost.
It now seems that gone are the days of compromise. High speed low earth satellite will meet most requirements almost immediately based on the above mentioned benefits. Though there is one element missing which may prove crucial for some and that is the ability to relocate the service. Upon its immediate release the LEO technology will not currently provide mobility, however service providers have indicated that the ability should be available within the next 2 years.
Much like managed IT services providers, there is expected to be several LEO providers in the near future, and it is anticipated that the bulk of Australia’s existing telecommunications providers will onboard the technology imminently. So again, you should seek to consider which “telco” will work best for you. At the end of the day, you will be purchasing the same product regardless of who you buy from so what you need to be assured of is the after sales support and the ability to build a trusted and reciprocal relationship.
