Poor broadband choices knock £40,000 off the average home value, find out how Satellite broadband could be the solution
Do you live in a picturesque rural location that what it makes up for in peace and quiet, it lacks in a reliable internet connection? Satellite broadband could be the solution for you. Read on to find out more…
More of us want to live our dream of buying a property in a rural location to escape pollution, have more space and enjoy a slower pace of life.
However, did you know that not only does unreliable internet access impact working from home, it can also be detrimental to the value of your property? Last year satellite broadband provider, Konnect, found that poor broadband can knock £40,000 off the value of the average home.
Thankfully there is a solution. Satellite broadband is available for those living in rural areas, which are likely to find they have poor or no internet connection when using traditional broadbands such as Fibre, phone line (ADSL) and Mobile.
Instead of using phone lines or in the ground cable, for satellite broadband you simply need a clear line of sight from your home to the southern sky, and a place to install a satellite dish, which then beams a signal to a satellite in space and back again.
There are different options of satellite broadband available, at different prices. As bills increase, it’s important that you choose the right and affordable option for your household.
