It is the most widespread type of connection to the satellite channel. The low speed connection sends the data to Internet, through the ground channel of communication: a dial-up, dedicated line, radio Ethernet etc. and the receiving of the information occurs through the high-speed satellite channel.
Some advantages of asymmetrical satellite access:
It is necessary to divide all given services into services for the corporate users and SOHO (Small office/Home office). First cost of the satellite operators is always considerable higher. The guarantee of the minimum limit of speed is given, and the work in the dedicated bandwidths is possible, at which the speed does not depend on amount of parallel users, working on this service. Secondly, configurations work in the shared channel, it is rather difficult to match all wishes, but designed to the certain degree of everyones activity, inherent just for the end user. The largest problem of services for final usage is the clients distributing service on a local network, thus considerably increasing loading of the satellite channel.
