Satellite internet FAQs
How does satellite work?
VSAT terminals are installed by authorised installers at your site. Each terminal consists of a small dish installed outside at a carefully selected position to ensure it has a ‘clean’ path between the dish and the satellite. The dish connects via a coaxial cable to the satellite modem installed indoors, delivering internet access via its ethernet port(s). The satellite ‘relays’ signals in the Ka-frequency band, between the VSAT terminal and an earth-station in Luxembourg, ‘connecting’ the VSAT terminal to the internet.
Who is this service for?
What is Yahclick?
YahClick is a high-speed always-on Internet access service delivered via Satellite by Vox.
How fast is the Yahclick broadband service?
There are numerous packages available to choose from. The advertised speeds are maximum “burstable” throughputs. YahSat’s network capacity planning aims to ensure that during the busiest hours of usage, the throughput over the satellite path does not drop below 50% of the link’s maximum speed.
Does Yahclick support voice?
To ensure voice quality, a network connection must support a feature called ‘Quality Of Service (QoS)’ that prioritises voice traffic over normal data traffic (e.g. http, YouTube, torrents, etc.).
If you need to run telephone calls, please ensure that you choose one of the YahClick ‘Voice’ enabled service plans. These are specifically designed to prioritise voice and support between one to eight concurrent G.729 encoded voice calls – depending on the service plan selected.
Where is it available?
The service is available throughout South Africa, except for small areas in the Northern Cape and North West Province. Coverage is delivered via 6 high-power spot-beams, each focused on a specific part of the country and overlapping in some areas.
How big are the satellite dishes?
The further a customer is located away from the centre of the spot beam (where signals are the strongest), the weaker the signals become. For sites towards the edges of the beams, we compensate for the ‘weaker’ signal by using a larger dish. The 3 dish sizes that can be deployed are: 74cm (oval), 98cm (round) and 120cm (round).
I already have a DSTV dish, do I still need a dish from Yahclick?
Yes. The YahClick system requires a unique dish in order to send and receive information via satellite. You cannot use your DSTV dish for YahClick high-speed Internet service.
