A request for a Web page is sent from your computer
to a satellite about 22,000 miles out in space. At this
altitude, the satellite's period of rotation (24 hours)
matches the earth's, and the satellite always remains in the
same spot over the earth (geosynchronous orbit). Because
Internet via satellite is so technologically advanced, this
distance hardly makes a difference, even with rural Internet
The satellite contacts the Hughes Network Operations
Center (NOC) which contacts the specific Website.
The Website beams the information back along the same path to the NOC, then to the satellite, and then to your computer through your HughesNet dish and modem. Although the signal travels a great distance, there is only a fraction of a second delay during this transmission. This is similar to the delay you may have experienced when using a cell phone. In most cases, latency isn't apparent while surfing online. Once the technology is set up in your home, connecting to the Internet via satellite is simple.
