Remote Internet Service Wherever You Are

Make Your Own Remote Business Communication Plan

Whether you work in a home office or from a business in a remote location, you face many unique challenges. Reliable Internet doesn’t have to be one of them. While some communities have a rural business plan that includes Internet service, it could be several more years until many areas are able to get DSL or fiber lines. However, your business can get satellite-based remote Internet now with one of Skycasters’ remote business service plans, regardless of your community’s current infrastructure.

Each one of our remote business service plans is designed to provide lightning fast broadband satellite Internet specifically for small business remote access, anywhere.

When we say anywhere, we mean it. Our network provides bandwidth on three of the world’s most premier geostationary satellites–G-28, T11N and SES3–offering small business access to the Internet virtually everywhere in the western hemisphere.

Skycasters’ remote business service plans offer a Committed Information Rate (CIR)tooltip. Whether you’re looking for video conferencing, VPNs (Virtual Private Networks), streaming video, mobile satellite Internet, or the ability to handle large amounts of data, Skycasters can design a VSAT system for the Internet service you need.

Throttled Throughput (Fair Access Policy – FAP) | Service Plan Upgrades


MaxIR – Maximum Information Rate, the maximum speed at which data can be received or transmitted.
CIR – Committed Information Rate, the speed at which we guarantee data can be received or transmitted. We guarantee you will receive 110% of your CIR at least 90% of the time, if not more.
Throughput Allowance – This is the total amount of data that can be transferred up and/or down in a given billing cycle (30 days). Please make sure to review our Fair Access Policy (FAP). There are two options for you to choose from regarding your Throughput Allowance:
Option 1 – If you may need additional throughput some months you may purchase an “unlimited” plan. With this option, you will be billed according to your service plan for any throughput in excess of the plan allowance.
Option 2 – If you prefer flat rate billing, you may choose a “limited” plan. If you exceed your plan’s throughput allowance, your connection speeds may be slowed down until your usage is back in profile with the plan.
Note – Both Platinum & Gold can be configured as Option 1 or Option 2
Note – Platinum Service Plan will be optimized for VoIP (1 slot every frame while idle)
Note – Gold Service Plans will receive 1 slot every 4th frame while idle.
IP Addressing – All plans include 1 publicly routable static IP address. Blocks of 5 or 13 are available. Block of 5 is $30.00. Block of 13 is $60.00. Up to 256 are available if needed at an additional charge. If you need more than 5 IP addresses, your request must be justified in writing to meet ARIN requirements.
