1. Your computer and the Exede modem.
You may connect your computer directly to the Exede modem with an Ethernet cable (included). Better yet, connect a wireless router to create your own local wireless network, enabling you to connect multiple computers, tablets, smart phones and other wireless devices to your Exede service.
2. The Exede minidish.
Our dish receives signals from and transmits signals to the satellite. It’s about the same size as satellite TV dishes, and can be mounted to the outside of your house, on the roof, or on a pole on your property. Standard installation is free.**
3. Exede satellites
Located in geostationary orbit 22,000 miles above the equator, our satellites provide an efficient, effective method to provide high speed Internet service to the U.S. using spot beam technology. The main purpose of the satellite is to relay signals from your home to our gateways, and back again.
4. Exede gateways
Our gateways are located throughout North America. The gateway receives the signal from the satellite and connects it to the Internet, and transmits the data from the Internet back up to the satellite.
5. The Internet
Everything on the Internet that’s available via a wired connection is also available through Exede satellite Internet service. You will now be able to browse the web super fast, download music and movies, share photos and video chat with friends and family, and much, much more.
