ORBITLINK is the high-speed Internet solution that's available to everyone in across the length and breadth of the Ireland. As long as you have a clear view of the southern sky, ORBITLINK uses satellite technology to give you a super-fast, always-on Internet connection - so you can enjoy the Internet the way it was meant to be. ORBITLINK gets you online instantly, lets you surf and open pages faster and download files in a fraction of the time it takes a dial-up modem.
How does it work?
ORBITLINK delivers high-speed Internet over satellite - not over your telephone line - so you can surf and talk at the same time. An approved ORBITLINK installer will connect your computer to a satellite modem and link it to a satellite dish (antenna) that's typically mounted on the roof of your home or office building. The satellite dish sends and receives information (i.e., email, Web pages, files) over the Internet and delivers it your computer almost instantly!
