HISTORY

1960

NASA developed live satellite communication.

1965

The world’s first commercial satellite, intelsat I, was launched into space.

1980

More Than 30,000 60cm Antenna Systems Were Sold.

1985

The World’s First Ku Band Was Developed By Schlumberger Oilfield Research.

2007

Hughes Communications started deploying Ka band VSAT sites for consumers under its HughesNet brand on the Spaceway 3 satellite

2012

In this year Hughes Communications started deploying Ka band VSAT sites for consumers under its HughesNet brand on its EchoStar XXVII/Jupiter 1 satellite

2014

Hughes became the first Satellite Internet Provider to surpass one million active terminals

WHAT’S IN STORE FOR THE FUTURE?

BEAMING FORWARD

Technological advances have massively improved the price-performance ratio of FSS (Fixed Satellite Service). The latest VSAT systems utilize KA band technology which offers higher data rates at lower costs.

There are plans in place on a massive scale that will deliver a quantum leap in the delivery of satellite technology into space.

This change will have a huge impact on bundle pricing, and will deliver costs in line with terrestrial communications, but with more guarantees and consistent speeds
