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 being deployed for this service are: 74cm (oval), 98cm (round) and 120cm (round).
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.
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.
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 supports between one to eight concurrent G.729 encoded voice calls – depending on the service plan selected.
