Stay Connected with a Skycasters Satellite Connection

Skycasters optimizes your VoIP phone system by providing a TCP/IP (Internet) connection via satellite that meets your specific needs for voice and data. Small business VoIP phone system users can count on Skycasters for consistent uninterrupted service in North America, Central America, and the Caribbean. Unlike land-based systems, satellite service is independent of the local infrastructure so it is unaffected by disasters and weather-related outages.

Other providers oversubscribe their networks, which can impact performance. But our Skycasters network incorporates core-switching technology into our all-Cisco backbone to reduce latency to under 700 ms (and often under 600) for clear voice reception. Other advantages include:

  • Static and dynamic jitter buffer technology
  • Guarantee Speeds & Quality of Service (QoS) priority
  • Packet retention with low bit rate error rates (10-9)
  • Fully-customizable packages
  • 24/7 live customer service from our Akron, Ohio network operations center (NOC)

Call quality is excellent! Much better than a cell phone actually.

Call quality is great, comparable to a cell phone. The product is one of the cheapest in the market. Configuration is simple. Tends to use a lot of bandwidth, so evaluate options carefully.

This service is optimized for satellite. Call sounds great, bandwidth efficiency is good and network latency is hard to notice.
