Satelite Downlink

I'm looking for some information on Connecting to the Internet via modem/ISDN and Satelite Downlink. There you connect to the Internet as usual via modem and send your request, but the result are not received via modem, they come directly via satelite at 400 MBit/s (okay, you need a special receiver, but it's a great speed 8-).

Some time ago I heard from some manufacturers and providers that had this service, but now I can't find them again.

If you have some information, email-addresses or URLs on that topic, please let me know.

Satellite subscription services are experimenting with send/receivesatellite dishes for your home which will allow you to connect to their satellite for internet connection.  I know of now ISP that will provide this for home use.  Technology being what it is, it is possible someone is doing it by now, but I don't think you will find you can get it.  Expensive business use satellite  connections exist, but I think you are asking about home use.

A better answer:

Search the Internet, looking for
"satellite" and "dish" and "internet" and "access",
and you'll get about 19000 'hits',
including:  http://WWW.SatelliteCity.com
and http://WWW.LittleDish.com/direcpcpackage.html
and http://WWW.LittleDish.com/direcpcinstall.html

I started my searches by looking at ISP providers and found none listing any satellite services.  I stand corrected and withdraw the answer.   I was looking for this service myself about 8 months ago and couldn't find it available. (That's why I said "Technology being what it is, it is possible someone is doing it by now")   Thanks for the info.  I think I'll check it out myself.  The price is WAY HIGH, at first glance.  Damn, does technology change fast or what!!!!!  I can't imagine where we will be in another 10 years.

There is the possibility of receiving newsgroups via satellite.  You only need receiving equipment for this.  For posting you would still need a conventional system or use dejanews etc.

Because of long delays via the satellite path real-time and interactive traffic would have bad response times.

Sorry, but I was looking for some satelite downlink providers for home use.

Here in Germany there once was an offer for something like that. You had to buy a satelite dish and receiver for about $1500, and you had to pay mothly fees about $50. Then you dialed in via a normal ISP like AOL or CompuServe, but you got your data via satelite at 400 MBit/s. You just had to use your modem to send out the request, there was no way to send anything directly to the satelite.

I don't remember the name of the provider or the name of the manufacturer, so I asked this question here.

I think you mean 400 kbit/s, not 400Mbit/s

Sorry, for the delay. But I had some big problems with my computer, I had to reinstall the whole machine.

Joopy: Right, it was wrong. I meant 4 MBit/s (that's what some providers allow).

Otta: Sorry. Your answer helped me a lot. DirecPC was exactly what I was looking for. So please answer and get your points.
