How it all works?

There are different types of internet connection, such as Dial-Up, ADSL, Leased Line, etc. Satellite internet is a kind of internet connection and is used mainly in remote areas or in areas where internet access is problematic because of its lack, or slow speed of the high cost of local internet connections.

Connecting to the internet through various geostationary satellites, which are located at an altitude of 35,786 km above the equator and turn around the planet with angular rate equal to the angular velocity of rotation of the Earth around the axis, so every geostationary satellite is in heaven, and one point will not move.
So each satellite is to a certain point of the sky, but everywhere there can be a signal from him? The signal from the satellite was adopted only in the territory, which covers its transmitter. This is called the area a zone coverage. There may be several satellite transmitters.

So you can imagine what territory can extend the signal, look at the pattern of coverage of one of the satellites. White lines here shows the area where the signal can take. Near the white lines shows the level of the signal. The signal is expressed in dBW. The higher the value dBW the smaller diameter antenna required for the normal receiving of a signal. For example, the signal 48 dBW excellent receiving antenna diameter of 60 centimeters.
Now that you better acquainted with the basics, let's consider the technical details of organizing satellite Internet. There are 2 variants of the Internet:
