Satellite Internet has become exceptionally popular over the last decade as a means of providing easy Internet access to rural and remote areas, as well as other areas that might be inconvenienced by a fiber installation. Satellite Internet today is much faster than the satellite Internet of just a few years ago due to many technological benefits in the field. It is also far more reliable and offers speeds significantly higher than dial-up Internet access.
Some people might be concerned about potential security risks because of the way satellite data is wirelessly received and transmitted. Wi-fi access through traditional Internet portals has come under fire lately because often the data transmitted through wireless connections is entirely unencrypted. While this may be true for some wi-fi networks it is not true for the data that is uploaded and downloaded through satellite Internet services. Cellular data has been criticized for similar reasons.
Satellite Internet services always encrypt their data whether it is being sent from the user or being received by the user. This means that the data is completely secure and cannot be used maliciously by hackers or identity thieves. HughesNet employs security standards that are extremely high and virtually impossible to break. Without these high encryption standards data could be hijacked by third parties to be used by them as they wish. This is a very real concern for those who use unsecured wireless portals that are not based on satellite technology. HughesNet Gen4 speeds are also above the competition. Call today to find out more.
