Skywired high-speed Internet by satellite

Enjoy easy, convenient high-speed Internet anywhere, anytime!

Significant parts of South Africa still lacks access to sufficient and reliable internet. Thanks to the technologically advanced "KA-Band Beam" technology and the partnership between @lantic, Vox Telecom and Yahsat, it will soon be something of the past. The broadband service gives access to Internet-based services such as SMS, fax to email, phone services and even mobile video monitoring from hand devices.

What is YahClick Satellite?

Connectivity provides a solution to one of mankind's most basic needs: communication. However, for many people in South Africa communication in the form of internet connectivity remains a highly expensive and unviable option. Yahsat offers a cutting-edge broadband satellite service to South African consumers and businesses that will deliver reliable, high-speed internet connectivity to users in both rural and urban areas with limited or no internet access, at costs comparable to current terrestrial services.

How does it work?

YahClick maximises spectral efficiency through frequency re-use. While this sounds rather technical, it means that Yahsat can provide high power, concentrated beams targeted over specific areas with high market potential. The ability to re-use frequencies in different locations enables greater efficiency in the use of the frequency spectrum, a scarce and nite natural resource. While traditional satellite technology utilises broad single beams covering entire continents and regions, YahClick's Ka-band spot beams provide coverage over highly targeted areas (a smaller footprint on the ground), which simply means more reliability, greater efficiency on the ground, smaller antennas and lower costs for the end user, as well as the elimination of issues with spectrum availability.

Step 1

A request for a Web page is sent from your computer to a satellite about 22,000 miles out in space. At this altitude, the satellite's period of rotation (24 hours) matches the earth's, and the satellite always remains in the same spot over the earth (geosynchronous orbit). Because Internet via satellite is so technologically advanced, this distance hardly makes a difference, even with rural Internet connections.

Step 2

The satellite contacts the Yahsat Network Operations Center (NOC) which locates the specific Website you have requested.

Step 3

The Website beams the information back along the same path to the NOC, then to the satellite, and then to your computer through your HughesNet dish and modem. Although the signal travels a great distance, there is only a fraction of a second delay during this transmission. This is similar to the delay you may have experienced when using a cell phone. In most cases, latency isn't apparent while surfing online. Once the technology is set up in your home, connecting to the Internet via satellite is simple.

Who is it for?

YahClick Satellite is a cutting-edge broadband satellite service offered to South African consumers and businesses that will deliver reliable, high-speed internet connectivity to users in both rural and urban areas with limited or no internet access, at costs comparable to current terrestrial services like ADSL and 3G.

Coverage Area

The coverage for of Ka-Band Technology is determined by the positioning of 6 spotted beams stationed over South Africa. A variation of 3 dishes are available for the different signal strengths that may exist in these beam locations namely: 74cm, 98cm, 120cm dishes

Coverage Area

Basic Options

  • A variety in terms of Up and Download speeds to the internet
  • Quantity of data needed on a daily base. (If the daily quota is exceeded, the service will be throttled to 128Kbps/28Kbps).
  • The daily usage quota can be reset for the day without adding big trunks of data at high cost
  • Static Internet Protocol addresses are available on selective packages
  • A Free zone for high data downloads is available between 01:00am and 06:00am daily on consumer packages. The data used during this free zone are not calculated in the daily quota (only applicable to Consumer and Business plans)
  • 3 Types of CPE equipment needed at customer premises

Service Requirements

  • Clear sight to 47.6 degrees East
  • Customer must be situated within the coverage area of the spotted beams of the Y1-B satellite
  • Availability of electricity
  • Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) - The equipment will be supplied and installed by a Certified @lantic Installer, at the premises of the customer. The customer's position, data package and network specications will determine the composition of the CPE packages
  • The CPE packages includes the following:
    • Satellite dish ( 74cm, 98cm of 120cm dishes) and bracket
    • LNB (Transmitter/Receiver Unit, TxRx 1 or 2 Watt)
    • Hughes HN9200 or HN9400 Indoor Routers
    • Installation Voucher
