WildBlue Exede Satellite vs. Dial-Up Internet Service

Is WildBlue Faster than Dial-Up?

Surprisingly, a lot of people in rural areas are still using dial-up Internet service to connect to the Internet. They don't have access to wired broadband such as DSL or cable and there's no plans in sight. But there's hope! What many people don't know is that there is an alternative way to get broadband Internet - Satellite Internet offers broadband Internet service that's not only over 200x faster than Dial-Up, it's even faster than standard DSL and some cable services in rural areas!

By the time you're done reading this page you'll see it's time to drop traditional phone service all together and upgrade to Exede high speed satellite broadband Internet and Exede Voice for your home phone service.

Slow Internet Speeds

To connect to the Internet using dial-up subscribers have to use their phone line to dial/call their local internet service provider to connect to their computers which have a broadband internet service piped into their business. Dial-up Internet service providers have limited phone lines

Extra Phone Line + Service Fees

To connect to the Internet using dial-up subscribers have to use their phone line to dial/call their local internet service provider to connect to their computers which have a broadband internet service piped into their business. This means you have to pay for two phone lines, or else you cannot be on the Internet and the phone at the same time. Friends and family trying to call you will get a busy signal. As you know, phone service costs money PLUS you have all the taxes and fees on top of that. If you think you have cheap Internet service, think again!

Busy Signal + Dropped Connections

Dial-up Internet service providers have limited phone lines which means subscribers often times get a busy signal during peak hours when everyone else in town is trying to use the dial-up service.

One Computer at a Time

Dial-up internet is not a broadband Internet service which means you cannot use a router to let multiple people use the Internet service at the same time. Instead, only one person in the home can dial-up at a time. That's sort of like having one toilet in a house of five teenage girls getting ready for school. Eeek!

Not Wireless

Since Dial-up Internet uses the phone line to get connected to the Internet, computers must be located nearby a phone jack in the home or room. You can't relax on the living room couch to use your wireless device to surf the Internet anywhere in your home. WildBlue Exede is wireless-ready. All you need is a wireless router and you're ready to roam your home. Learn more about broadband wireless internet in your home.
