Communication with Satellite Internet

People in more remote areas of the country, such as in rural or mountainous regions, they probably understand the frustrations associated with cellular reception. The poor reception in these areas make it difficult for people living in such areas to stay in touch with their friends and family that may live in another part of the country or the world. Moreover, with the poor internet connection (most rely on dial-up internet), people are left with a limited options in communications—until now, with the advent of satellite broadband internet.
The lack of infrastructure for traditional broadband internet in rural and remote regions of the country is a direct result of the high costs and low profitability of setting up the infrastructure. Because of the sparse population in these regions, it is often very unprofitable for internet service providers to invest in establishing the proper infrastructure in these areas; thus, most households in rural and remote areas have to rely on dial-up internet to access the worldwide web. The lack of a strong, high speed internet connection coupled with the poor cellular reception in these areas ensure that people have difficulties finding adequate outlets for staying in touch with friends and families that live outside the area.
With satellite broadband internet, these regions can enjoy a high speed internet connection, enabling them new means of communication with loved ones. In addition to all the basic means of keeping in touch that they could enjoy with dial-up internet, such as emails and social media networks, now people can enjoy new capabilities such as video chatting. With video chatting applications such as Skype, people can stay connected more easily than ever. Instead of spending money on long distance calls to talk to relatives and friends from the past that may live across the country, we can chat face-to-face interactively through these applications. We can see their facial expressions while we hear their laugh, their mannerisms while they tell a story, or even how much they have changed since we last saw them. The best part of this capability is that it is a free service! It provides a better way to stay in touch with loved ones at a much lower price of free. It is the great way for parents to stay in touch with their children who are away at university or studying abroad. Phone bills can add up to a pricey sum, unless you find innovative ways such as video chatting to stay in touch. Moreover, it may be difficult for a parent to let go of a child as they go away to college; however, this way, we can still see their faces as we talk to them.
Furthermore, because of the high speed connection of satellite internet, we no longer need to selectively load photos on social media networks, such as Face book. We can easily zoom through the photos of our cousin's wedding or our friend's skydiving adventures. It keeps us connected to all those loved ones in our live even if thousands of physical miles separate us.
