What is satellite broadband?

Satellite broadband is pretty ‘ronseal’ in that it is what it says on the tin - broadband that comes through a satellite dish.

You may be familiar with fibre-powered broadband, which is broadband that’s delivered either to your home (fibre-to-the-home) or to a distribution cabinet near your home (fibre-to-the-cabinet). However installing fibre is an expensive and time-consuming process, which costs a lot of time and money, as the ground needs to be dug up and fibre-optic cables laid. This doesn't apply to satellite broadband which is quick and easy to install as long as you have the right equipment.

Can I get satellite broadband in my area?

Satellite broadband doesn't rely on fibre-optic cables, which means almost everyone in Ireland can get it as long as you install the necessary equipment.

So if you live in an area where there's no high-speed broadband available then satellite broadband could be the right option for you.

How fast is satellite broadband?

The satellite broadband services available on bonkers.ie can deliver speeds of up to 50Mb/s, which is faster than some people’s wired broadband speeds. However it is still some distance off the 1Gb/s or 1,000Mb/s speeds available with ‘pure fibre’ or fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) from companies such as SIRO or OpenEir.

How do I install satellite broadband?

You can do it yourself or pay to have it installed by your provider. With Bigblu, a company that offers satellite broadband through bonkers.ie, there’s a one-off fee of €49 to have the pros do it. You then rent your equipment for a small monthly fee, meaning there’s no large up-front costs for getting set up.
