Satellite Internet in Hawaii

Hawaii is the 50th, and (so far) the last, state in the U.S. It was admitted to the Union on August 21, 1959 and is the only state to be made up entirely of islands. Hawaii was one of four states (along with Vermont, Texas, and California) that was independent prior to statehood. The Kingdom of Hawaii was sovereign from 1810 until 1893 when the monarchy was overthrown by American and European businessmen. Thereafter, it was an independent republic from 1894 until 1898, when it was annexed by the U.S. as a territory and finally became a state in 1959.

Hawaii occupies an archipelago that spreads over 1,500 miles in the central Pacific Ocean, southwest of the continental United States. All of the Hawaiian islands were formed from volcanic activity that initiated under the ocean water at a hotspot. As the tectonic plate beneath the Pacific Ocean moved northwest, the hot spot remained stationary, slowly creating more volcanoes that eventually rose above sea level and became the Hawaiian Islands.

The eight main islands of Hawaii are Ni’ihau, Kaua’i, O’ahu, Moloka’I, Lana’i, Kaho’olawe, Maui, and Hawai’i. Hawai’i is the largest and is often called “The Big Island” in order to avoid confusion with the name of the state as a whole. The Big Island is the site of most of the current volcanic activity in Hawaii. The last volcanic eruption outside the Big Island occurred at Haleakala on Maui before the 18th century. Volcanic activity and erosion have created very impressive geological features on the islands, which tourists and residents alike find fascinating.

Aside from being the only state that is not geographically located in North America, Hawaii is also the only state (if not the only place in America) that grows coffee, is completely surrounded by water, is entirely an archipelago, has a royal palace, and does not have a straight line in its state boundary. Native Hawaiians have an average lifespan of 79.8 years (77.1 years for men and 82.5 years for women), the longest average lifespan of any U.S. state. Current President Barack Obama spent much of his childhood in Hawaii and is the only American president to hail from the state.

Hawaii’s climate is typical for the tropics, although temperatures and humidity tend to be a bit less extreme due to constant trade winds from the east. Summer highs tend to remain in the upper 80s° F, while winter temperatures are usually in the low to mid 80’s. Oddly, snow is not typically associated with a tropical climate, but it does fall on the Big Island’s volcanic summits Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, both more than 13,500 feet above sea level, in the winter months. Mount Wai’ale’ale, on Kaua’i, has the second highest average annual rainfall on Earth, measuring around 460 inches annually. Most of Hawaii has only two seasons – the dry season and the wet season, with the former occurring between May and October and the latter occurring between October and April.

As of 2008, Hawaii had an estimated population of 1,288,198, a 1% increase from 2004. This includes a natural increase of people due to deaths and birth, and an increase due to migration. Hawaii’s population is also contributed to by the large military presence there, which makes up approximately 1.3% of the population.

O’ahu, nicknamed “The Gathering Place,” is the most populous island with a resident population of just under one million people in 597 square miles; that’s approximately 1,650 people per square mile (to compare, New Jersey, with a population of 8.7 million people in 7,417 square miles has 1,134 people per square mile). However, O’ahu does not demonstrate the norm; Hawaii’s 1,275,194 people spread over 6,423 square miles results in an average population density of 188.6 people per square mile, making the whole of Hawaii less densely populated than Ohio and Illinois.

In 2003, the gross output for the state was $47 billion; per capita income for Hawaiian residents was $330,441. Exports for the 50th state include food and apparel, although they play a small role in the economy. Due to Hawaii’s remote location, shipping distances are considerable and greatly decrease the choices of viable markets.

However, tourism remains a large sector of the Hawaiian economy. Since achieving statehood in 1959, Hawaii’s largest industry has been tourism, contributing 24.3% of the Gross State Product in 1997, despite efforts on the state’s part to diversify its economy. In 2003, state government data showed that there were more than 6.4 million visitors to the Hawaiian Islands in that year, contributing more than $10 billion to the state’s economy. Because of mild weather year-round, tourist travel is popular throughout the year and does not wax and wane as heavily as tourist destinations in the continental U.S., where climate is more fickle.

If you are a business owner looking to secure Internet connections for your guests on the Hawaiian Islands, look no further than Skycasters. We understand that in today’s always-connected world, if you can’t provide broadband access, you can’t attract the best guests. Monthly recurring costs shouldn’t prevent you from bringing the highest quality communications to the most remote locations.

Up until now, you’ve been stuck in a Catch-22. Providing the high-speed, high-quality Internet connection your customers demand, required a high capacity satellite link that came with a large monthly bill. The Skycasters PTMP solution takes that expense line and turns it into a revenue line – and that’s a sure-fire way to help the bottom line.

It stays on all the time and allows you to surf the web more than a hundred times faster than regular dial-up. It can be irritating and time-consuming using dial-up and you can save the hassle of hooking up a second phone line by using satellite Internet instead.

Satellite broadband Internet is just as good as broadband, and can be reached in those areas where cable and DSL can’t. It’s a great way to get the Internet service that you need for your personal home office or desk at work. Satellite Internet is simple to install, so don’t waste another minute.
