The second largest US satellite TV operator is ready to take things to a new level.
Dish Network Corp, known more as just DISH, recently unveiled its satellite broadband services that targets rural communities beyond the reach of terrestrial fibre networks or other broadband providers.

Australian satellite companies operate huge VSAT or ground stations that are made up of uplinks interconnected with various components in mesh or star topology. Teleports can provide customized or short-term hosting and back-up solutions to businesses that rely on terrestrial networks. Teleports can fill the gap in signal transmission, especially when distance and network capacity pose a problem.
Backhaul refers to all the networks that bring the signals to the central station. In satellite communications, teleports can serve a crucial part of backhaul for terrestrial telecommunications and Internet delivery. Teleports can act as a back channel to fill the gap in Internet communications. Data speed, interference, relative costs and availability of radio frequency spectrum space affect the choice of backhaul.
