Those who registered their interest before 8th March 2018 are eligible to receive a free WiFi access point. For other users, the WiFi access point is available as an add-on.

Satellites are placed 36,000km away from Earth for ground antennas to be pointed to satellite without having to track the satellite's motion. Thus, it takes data one quarter of a second to reach the satellite. Real-time games and applications may find this unfavorable, but the experience should be fine for web browsing, video streaming and VOIP calls.

Yes, you may experience slower internet service typically 15 - 30 minutes during a downpour. When rain is excessive, outages could be longer than 30 minutes.

In a standard installation, an antenna is attached to a wall or roof using standard mounting brackets to point to our satellite. Two (2) RF cables (standard length up to 30m) are then wired from the antenna into your premise. Inside your premise, the RF cables would be connected to the satellite modem which requires power from a typical wall socket. To access internet services one could use a network (RJ45) cable to connect the satellite modem to a WiFi Access Point or computer.

We expect installations to be completed typically within two working days from sign-up approval, subject to your availability and the availability of our installers.

Any devices with WiFi functionality can access our service through a WiFi access point.

VPN and other remote computer access software used to connect business servers to at-home workers, may experience slower speeds. Some VPNs may not work at all.
