KA AND KU BANDS

We believe in using Ka and Ku bands because they each have their merits. Even though they offer the same speeds, there are differences which tailor them to various consumers.

We offer high frequencies since the higher the frequency, the less prone you are to interference from rain.

KA

The improvement in technology allows us to deliver Ka band services at more competitive and affordable price. Ka band is as reliable as Ku band and allows for much faster speeds.

  • Data traffic is increasingly bandwidth intensive. The higher Ka-band operating frequency enables high bandwidth data throughput
  • Ka-band satellites are highly efficient, which lowers bandwidth cost
  • Ka-band broadband is a proven technology delivering high-speed services

KU

With the progress in technology, we can offer Ku band at the highest reliability.

  • Ku band is flexible; its uplinks and downlinks can be increased when necessary. This allows us to make smaller receiving satellite dishes
  • Ku band is dependable as it is less vulnerable to rain
