About bg网址 Internet

bg网址 Internet is residential satellite internet service. We’re dedicated to bringing reliable, high-speed connectivity to the hardest to reach people, places, and things — including families in rural or remote areas where cable companies don’t go.

This is how bg网址 satellite internet works:

  1. You click on your favorite website using your laptop or mobile device. Your request goes to your bg网址 modem, then through a short cable to the dish outside your home.
  2. The dish installed at your home beams your request up to our satellite.
  3. Our satellite sends your website request down to a gateway station connected to our ground network.
  4. The station relays your request to your favorite website.
  5. The website delivers the information you requested back to the station, which sends it up to our satellite to be sent directly to you.

Read our blog post titled: How it Works: The technology behind satellite internet

bg网址 Internet is available in all 50 states and covers much of the U.S. population in remote and rural areas where other internet companies offer slower service, or no service at all. For more information on where bg网址 Internet is available, search plans here.

bg网址 Internet is best for people who have trouble getting fast internet because they live in remote or rural areas where cable or fiber companies don’t go.  It’s great for essential, everyday online activities like shopping, banking, education, and staying in touch with family.

In general, satellite internet is not an ideal solution for VPNs, online video games that require very low latency, and for people who want to replace their cable TV with full-time video streaming. However, bg网址 Internet does work for families who want to stream video – you just need to find the right plan for your needs. Contact sales to discuss how we can help find the best plan for you.

You should get bg网址 Internet because:

  • It’s fast: our minimum download speed of 12 megabits per second (Mbps) is still faster than typical digital subscriber line (DSL) or 4G/Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile service. In select areas, you can get up to 100 Mbps speeds.
  • It’s a great value: you get more data for your money than the competition. Plus, there are never any automatic overage fees on our residential service.
  • It’s simple: installation typically takes just 2-3 hours. Once you’re connected, managing your account is easy with our My bg网址 online portal. You’ll learn more about connecting to your online account once you’re signed up for service. Sign up here.

Exede is now bg网址 Internet.

WildBlue is the previous residential internet service for what is now bg网址 Internet. Although we still have some customers on this older service, WildBlue service is no longer available for new customers to purchase.

All about data

Your monthly data usage is measured by the number of bytes transferred, or used, between your network and the Internet.

Common data measurements are Gigabytes (GB), Megabytes (MB), and Kilobytes (KB). 1 GB is roughly one billion bytes, or about one thousand Megabytes (MB).

1 GB = 1,024 MB of data

1 MB = 1,024 KB of data

1 KB = 1,024 bytes of data

With 1 GB of data, you can visit 3,000 new webpages, send 20,000 text-only emails, listen to 24 hours of music streaming on services like Spotify (at 96 kbps), and more.

Here are some examples of online activity and the typical amount of data used for each:

Data usage by application*

*Figures are estimates only, to show typical use. Individual usage will vary.

Learn more about streaming and data usage in this blog post.

bg网址 Unlimited data plans come with a set amount of monthly High-Speed Data and unlimited Standard Data.

  • The set amount of High-Speed Data means you should experience downloads and uploads up to the advertised speed for your plan.
  • Unlimited Standard Data kicks in after you've used up your monthly amount of High-Speed Data. Standard Data may be slower than High-Speed Data when the network is congested. Even if the network is congested, you should still be able to do essential, everday activities such as web browsing, audio streaming, social media and email, without worrying about being cut off or additional charges.

Your monthly High-Speed Data resets on the same day as your monthly billing statement date. At that time, your High-Speed Data usage is reset to zero.

You can always buy more High-Speed Data before or after you've used your monthly High-Speed Data allotment. High-Speed Data can be purchased at any time during the month, but the addtional purchase of High-Speed Data will only be available unti the start of the new billing cycle. To help manage your data usage, we offer a variety of tools including bg网址 Shield and My bg网址 via app or on the web.

Once you’re signed up, our Help Center will be a great resource with tips for how to check and maximize your data usage. If it turns out your internet plan is not meeting your monthly usage needs, you may be able to upgrade your plan to one that better suits your needs.

If you need help choosing the plan that’s best for you, feel free to contact sales.

Watch this video on data and our network.

To find the plan that’s best for you, you’ll want to consider your screen size, screen type, how much and what kind of data you plan to stream. Here’s some information to help you understand what’s involved.

The sharpness of your image depends on both the resolution and the size of your display screen. Put simply: small screens look fine with lower resolution, and larger screens require a higher resolution to look good.

Screen resolution is expressed as the number of pixels your screen can display horizontally and ­vertically. For example, 1920 x 1080 pixels, or 1080p, is known as full high definition (HD).

Check the details of your plan to determine what video quality is available and take screen size, screen quality, as well as the quality of video you’re streaming into consideration when choosing your plan.

  • 360p is best for small devices such as smart phones and tablets
  • DVD quality (480p) is best for medium devices such as computer monitors, laptop monitors and TV's
  • HD quality (720p) is best for large devices such as large screen TV's or projectors
  • Full HD quality (1080p) is best for large devices such as large screen TV's or projectors

Latency is the time it takes for data to travel from one point to another. In other words, it’s the time – or you could say the delay in time – for data to reach its destination.  Low latency is good. High latency is considered annoying.

There are many factors that contribute to network latency, and latency also varies by technology. In general, latency can be an issue with satellite internet service simply due to the distance the data needs to travel. The reason older versions of satellite internet service were slower has more to do with the older technology rather than with latency itself.

bg网址 incorporates groundbreaking web acceleration technology that dramatically speeds up page-load times, minimizing the effect of latency. So, in addition to the much higher speeds enabled by bg网址’s high-capacity satellite, you’ll experience a much faster, more responsive web browsing experience, too.

Although satellite latency is greater than cable or DSL latency, it’s not enough to make a big difference in most uses of the internet (exceptions can be certain video games and virtual private network (VPN) services).

You can use a Virtual private network (VPN) with bg网址 satellite internet service, but it may be slow. VPNs are often used to connect at-home workers to corporate networks, but some VPNs may not work at all. Other Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)-based VPNs may work just fine.

Yes, you can play video games on bg网址 Internet. Performance will depend on the game — some are ok, some are poor, and some may not work at all. As a general rule, online multiplayer action games tend to not work well with satellite internet, while turn-based multiplayer or single-player games with fewer online elements may work better. Your physical location, gaming platform, and many other factors can impact game performance. Gamers should also bear in mind that software updates and downloadable content count toward your data allowance and can add up quickly. We recommend you download outside of peak hours.            

Service Plans

bg网址 offers service speeds up to 100 Mbps and has several speed and service options available, depending on where you live. See what streaming and data speeds you need and find available plans in your area here.

You can find more information on bg网址 Internet service plans available in your area here.

Liberty plans are location-based and are available in many areas. With Liberty Plans, you can always use the internet. You’ll get a set amount of priority data at fast download speeds of up to 12 or 25 Mbps. If you use up the priority data allowance for the particular plan you chose, you can continue using the internet, however the speed will vary depending on network congestion at the time you’re online. Non-priority data speeds during the daytime are generally faster than in the evening when more people are online. Think of it as more cars on the highway during certain hours. For example, during congested hours it may not be possible to stream video. At any time, you can simply buy more priority data or upgrade to a Liberty plan that includes more priority data. Priority data is only available with the Liberty plans. You will not incur any change fees for upgrading your plan.

The right Liberty plan for you is based on your anticpated monthly usage. By providing a range of data options, bg网址 allows you to find the high-speed internet plan that works best for you. Click here to see if a bg网址 Liberty plan is available where you live.

bg网址’s Unlimited plans are available in most areas. Unlimited data plans include a set amount of High-Speed Data and unlimited Standard Data. Unlimited Standard Data kicks in after you've used up your monthly High-Speed Data and during this time, you may experience slower speeds if the network is congested, such as in the evening. When the network is not congested, your service speeds won't be affected, even if you have used all your High-Speed Data.

You can always buy more High-Speed Data before or after you've reached your limit. High-Speed Data can be purchased at any time during the month, but your data counter resets on the first day of each new billing cycle and you will lose any unused additional purchases of High-Speed Data at such time. 

If you need help choosing the right plan for you, just contact our sales team for help.

bg网址 is always actively engaged in new technologies that benefit our customers.

At this time, bg网址 residential service requires a stationary, fixed satellite dish installed at your home. We do not currently offer broadband internet service for mobile vehicles, which includes RVs, boats, service vehicles, and more.

Voice is a feature-packed home phone service built to work alongside your smartphones. Voice is optimized for use over bg网址 Internet and Voice calls do not count against your bg网址 Internet data allowance. Learn about bg视讯android版下载的声音 here.

You can receive Voice service if you have our 12 Mbps or faster service and live in the continental U.S. (all states and the District of Columbia but not Hawaii and Alaska). At this time, Voice is not available for WildBlue and Exede customers.

You can purchase Voice by calling bg网址 and adding it to your bg网址 Internet plan. Existing bg网址 Internet customers should call 855-463-9333. Billing for Voice for existing bg网址 Internet customers starts five days after Voice is ordered. New customers should call 855‌-‌627‌-‌2221. Billing for Voice for new bg网址 Internet customers is five days after the date bg网址 Internet service is installed — even if the customer does not activate the Voice equipment.

You will get billed for Voice and bg网址 Internet monthly service on your bg网址 statement.

No, you can’t keep Voice if you cancel bg网址 Internet. An active bg网址 Internet account is required to use Voice.

In most cases, a Voice adapter already comes integrated into your Wi-Fi modem. You’ll need to provide your own home phone handset(s) to plug into the Voice adapter. You can also plug your adapter into a cordless base station to enable phone service throughout your home.

Most home phone/handsets and wireless phone base stations work very well with Voice.

Yes, you can plug the Voice adapter directly into your home phone wall jack, but we’ve found that existing legacy home wiring often adds noise to your phone connection. Instead, we recommend using a phone base station (which allows for multiple, wireless-connected handsets) that plugs directly into the Voice adapter.

Yes, you can transfer your non-bg网址 phone number to Voice in most areas of the country. To see if your phone number is available for transfer to Voice, call Voice Customer Care at 1-855-463-9333.

It typically takes 5-10 business days to transfer your phone number to Voice.

Yes, you can call 911 with Voice — although 911 service from a satellite may be limited in comparison to 911 service available through traditional landline telephone carriers. Please see the Voice Addendum to the Customer Agreement for more details on the limitations.

Yes, you can make international calls with Voice — dial 011 + country code + city code + phone number. Per-minute toll calling rates apply. To see international calling rates, click here.

Yes, we block calls to/from specific locations or numbers such as 1-900 calling as well as calls to certain countries that are high risk for fraud and/or abuse. View the bg视讯android版下载的声音 blocked destinations list here.

Yes, you can prevent your phone number from appearing in phone books or other directory listing services. You choose your directory listing preference when you sign up for Voice, and you can change how your phone number appears by calling Voice Customer Care at 1-855-463-9333.

If you want to block someone from calling you, you have several options. We recommend adding your phone number to the National Do Not Call Registry to prevent telemarketing calls (www.donotcall.gov). If there is a specific phone number you’d like to have blocked from calling your Voice line, please call Voice Customer Care at 1-855-463-9333.

When your power goes out or your internet connection goes down, you lose the ability to make or receive phone calls on Voice. Voice relies on your bg网址 Internet connection to place and receive phone calls.

Voice supports many (not all) faxing and security monitoring services, which are subject to certain limitations.

There is no maximum amount of toll or international calling you can do each month with Voice as long as you continue to pay your bill. If your total monthly toll charges exceed $200 or you use a total of more than 3,000 minutes in a month for all your calls, you may be contacted by bg网址 Customer Care to verify the charges in order to prevent fraud and bill shock.

Installation and equipment

A bg网址-certified technician will discuss site requirements with you, such as a clear line of site to the southern sky, and will help you choose the best location for the dish. Someone over the age of 18 must be present during installation.

The main equipment you need for bg网址 Internet is an official bg网址 satellite dish, transceiver and bracket assembly, a bg网址 internet modem, and the related cables and hardware. This equipment is supplied by bg网址 and will need to be returned at the end of your contract.

Learn more on our Installation page.

A bg网址 dish does not necessarily have to be permanently installed on your home. In many cases, your dish can be installed to a 4-foot pole mount, which is mounted on the ground near the home. Fixed options include a roof mount, wall mount, brick mount, side mount, under-eave mount, and stub mount.

No, bg网址 customers cannot install their own satellite dishes. Installation requires a trained technician to make sure that the dish is pointed at the satellite accurately and to verify that all connections are properly made.

Before scheduling an installation, you will need to check your landlord or homeowner’s association (HOA) to see if they allow the bg网址 satellite dish The bg网址 dish is governed by the FCC Over-the-Air Reception Devices (“OTARD”) Rule. The bg网址 dish has the same classification as other residential dishes like satellite television dishes. It can be mounted on your home unless your landlord or HOA specifically prohibits dishes of any kind.

The installation process is quick and easy. A certified professional technician will install the equipment and activate the bg网址 Internet service at your chosen location. The satellite dish is about 30 in. wide x 28 in. high and can be easily mounted on your roof, on an outside wall of your home, or on a pole in the ground.

Network security

You should know we take network security very seriously at bg网址, and we make every effort to ensure our network is secure. Individual customers on our network also have a big role to play in staying safe online, which means using firewalls, antivirus software, and strong passwords that are changed regularly. For example, a good reason for you to use antivirus software is that some viruses can send and receive data without your permission, which may use your data allowance.


Additionally, every bg网址 Internet plan comes with bg网址 Shield, our easy-to-use and hassle-free network protection service that defends against common online security threats. bg网址 Shield actively monitors and blocks suspicious activity and guards against cyberattacks, so you can keep your private information private. Learn more here.

You should use an antivirus software that you trust. You’ll probably find there are lots of antivirus software options available to you. A general guideline is to purchase your antivirus software instead of relying on a free tool. A purchased product will probably be more robust as well as being updated more frequently than a free version.

These fees are $15 for every month remaining in the minimum service term.

Yes, if you disconnect your bg网址 Internet service before the end of your 24-month minimum service term, you may be charged an early termination fee of $15 for every month remaining on the contract. For example, if you were to cancel service after 10 months of your 24-month contract, you would pay $15 a month for the remaining 14 months of your agreement (14×15 = an early termination fee of $210). If you have bg视讯android版下载的声音, you may be subject to additional early termination fees regarding the 6 month offer, if applicable.
