How To Connect To The Internet Via Satellite

Satellite Internet connections – Factors which affect the service quality

2. Rain Fade
Rain Fade is a factor which affects many wireless connections. I once used WiMax (Wireless internet) which sues the network like our cell phones use. But in case of WiMax the signals were operated at high frequency (in Ghz) and in this range the signals gets significantly weakened by rain and storms.

3. Line of Sight
The dish antenna at user’s end should have a line of sight connection with the satellite. It implies that there should be direct, straight signal link between the antenna and the satellite.
