What to consider when comparing satellite internet plans

Satellite internet is available at a couple of different speed tiers and at different price points, based on included data.

Speed

As with fixed-line internet, higher speed packs come at a higher price. In many cases, plans come with a basic connection by default, but can be upgraded to a standard connection for an additional cost per month.

Cost

Pricing will vary across different providers, depending on speed and data inclusions but most plans cost anywhere between $99 and $290 per month. Satellite plans break up data allowances into peak and off-peak times, with the cheaper plans all skewed towards having significantly lower peak-time data allowances.
