How pay as you go satellite broadband works.

A recent blog post I wrote, as well as other news on the web shows that pay as you go satellite broadband systems are live and active.

After exploring into this I realised no one has explained how the system will work once you have it all set it. So that’s exactly what I'm going to do now.


Just like with every satellite broadband package the equipment will consist on the antenna, satellite modem, mounting bracket/arm, LNB and the nuts and bolts.


We will arrange a day with you and an installation engineer that suits both parties, upon the visit to your property/site the engineer will discuss the best possible place to mount the satellite. On properties which are unsuitable or where customers do not wish to have a satellite antenna we are able to provide a King post mount which can be fixed anywhere on the properties land (please state this before the engineer comes to your site so we can provide the full equipment).

Once you are live

Once your pay as you go satellite broadband system is active you should be able to access the internet straight away as a 1GB top up is included in your initial cost.

At this stage feel free to use your satellite broadband connection however you like.

Checking your data usage

Satellite broadband unfortunately has data limits which may seem rather small at first. But your data can go a long way as long as you look after it. I’ve written a previous blog on how to check your data usage and given some tips to control how much data you use.

To check your data online use this is a direct link to your satellite modem and allows you to view your data usage breakdown.

Topping up

 When the time comes that you run out of data your browser will re-direct you to a screen that asks you to top up. Topping up is an easy process that can be done online or via the phone. Once your top up request has been processed (should not take too long) your system will start to work again.

If you want to keep on top of your system and ensure it continues to work you can always top up with larger amounts.
