For people connected to the Internet via satellite broadband, here are a few things that you need to know about rain fade and its effect on your satellite connection.


Satellite internet may have its hits and misses, but it is a reliable way to stay connected, especially if you are in the rural areas and fibre and fixed wireless broadband are not available.
