Satellite internet is available in even the most remote areas and speeds have been getting better in recent years. However, there are a few things to consider before making your decision.

What is Satellite Hi-Capacity?

If you live in a rural or remote area of Australia, you may be wondering if you need satellite internet. Here are a few things to consider that may help you make your decision:

– Do you have a landline telephone? If not, then satellite internet is likely your only option for broadband service.

– What is the quality of your mobile phone signal? If you have poor or no mobile phone coverage, then satellite internet may be a good option for you.

– Do you have a clear view of the southern sky? This is necessary for using satellite internet, as the service relies on a dish that must be able to receive a signal from a satellite in orbit.

If you answered yes to all of the above, then satellite internet is likely a good option for you.

Pros and Cons


– Satellite internet is available in even the most remote areas.

– Satellite internet speeds have been getting better in recent years.


– Satellite dishes can be unsightly.

– Satellite internet is susceptible to extreme weather conditions. Thunderstorms can block the radio signals between the dishes.

Ultimately, the decision of whether or not to get satellite internet depends on your specific situation.
