internet satellite This is how we are connected to the rest of the world. It broadcasts internet requests by radio signal to the satellite, which sends them to a Network Operations Center in Washington DC, which passes them on to the rest of the internet. To receive internet data, it makes the same trip back again. Although capable of fairly fast download speeds, the "lag" time between request and receive is very long.

Although I'm very thankful for this alternative to dial-up, I hope some day I'll be back on cable or DSL!
