How does it work?

Dial up to the Internet as normal using your telephone or ISDN line, ISP and modem. Once you've made this connection, a small piece of software provided will connect to our servers to log you in. When you then make a request to load a Website, check your emails, download a file or stream media, the tiny request will travel up your phone line to the Internet where it will jump across the Internet to servers in London with your request.

The Internet is accessed across high-speed connections and data you have requested is gathered, before sending it to our earth station. Here the data you have requested is broadcasted 40,000 miles up to the satellite in space at high speeds of up to 2Mb a second! Finally when your data reaches the satellite it is broadcast back down to be received by your mini dish and satellite modem. Your computer then decrypts your data and delivers it to your browser, or whichever application made the request, Nigel explains ‘despite this complex process moving your data over 40,000 miles, it all happens in real-time and the delay is as little as a quarter of a second before you start to receive the data your requested’
