Asta’s broadband satellite system comprises of a Gateway, a Satellite, and Customer terminals. The satellite links the gateway to the internet. In other words, your internet is no longer dependent on fiber cable, power outages, or defects in terrestrial infrastructure.

- The dish uses its antenna to beam the request to the Asta satellite.
- The satellite then sends your request down to the gateway station connected to our ground network.
