Ka Band

The Ka band is the future of VSat communications, it will offer internet via satellite users a less congested service with lower bandwidth costs than those of the Ku and C Band service. It will also be able to offer higher bandwidth rates, up to and surpassing 100Mb/s, using smaller antennas (typically 74cm). This technology differs from traditional Ku band satellite internet in that instead of large foot prints it uses multiple spot beams to cover the main usage areas and provides overlapping coverage.
