I read a lot of discussion about whether Ka or Ku band is the better satellite internet technology. The two major satellite internet companies in the United States are Hughesnet and WildBlue. Hughesnet is based on Ku-band satellite technology and WildBlue is based on Ka-band satellite technology. There are several advantages and disadvantages to the service provider of using either of these technologies. However, in this article we will focus on these technologies’ performance in relation to the users. I have put together some advantages and disadvantages of both types of technologies that will hopefully help you decide which might be the best for you.
