| If you live outside one of
the main urban areas of Scotland, satellite broadband may
deliver access where other broadband technologies are not
currently commercially or technically viable.
Satellite broadband uses a small antenna receiver dish fitted
to the outside of your house to link up with a satellite in
geo-stationary orbit at an altitude of approximately 24,000
miles. Don't be put off by the concept of satellites and aerial
dishes. The technology works and it is available to you.
Satellite broadband is normally available throughout Scotland,
as it does not depend on a land-based infrastructure.
You can find out what broadband technologies are available to you at home by entering your postcode into the 'Suppliers in your area' section at the top of the page.
