Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT)

What is a VSAT?
A VSAT is a small-sized telecommunications earth station that transmits and receives via satellite. The terminal size is 1.2 to 2.4 meters in diameter. VSAT stands for Very Small Aperture Terminal - its a catchy acronym and as such its been adopted by all and sundry for every type of satellite product from small components of a system to complete systems. Because the term really hinges around the small size of the antenna it has been used to describe both one-way and interactive systems. Specifically, we in the industry, isolate television broadcast receivers because counting these as well would simply distort the numbers in the marketplace, but data, audio and, to some extent, voice systems are included. Generally, these systems operate in the Ku-band and C-band frequencies. As a rule of thumb C-band (which suffers less from rain attenuation, but requires larger antennas) is used in Asia, Africa and Latin America whilst Ku-band (which can use smaller antennas, but suffers from rain fade in a monsoon-like downpour) is used in Europe and North America. Typically, interactive Ku-band antenna sizes range from 75 centimetres to 1.8 metres and C-band from 1.8 metres to 2.4 metres. One way systems can use antennas as small as 45 centimetres.

The experience with Electro Shack Inc., Internet is astonishing. When comparing typical activities with a dial-up service, the difference in the amount of time you'll be waiting to get what you want is night and day. Everyone's Internet technology is based on shared bandwidth, so sometimes one option will allow you to do things in less time than others. However, most DSL services limit their speeds to no more than a few times the computer modem speed, so Electro Shack Inc., will most likely be much faster than DSL available in the West Africa region.
