Thanks for the unlock of this post.
I just wanted to ask a question on satellite Internet in NZ.
I like the idea of having a backup if there was an earthquake or major communications disruption, that with a generator I could still communicate online.
Which brought me to this question: Is traffic handed off to the Internet at a teleport overseas or is it sent back down to a New Zealand teleport and therefore all traffic still has to go out via New Zealand communication cables/Internet routes?
That is also a large dish to have on a roof. Where I am, it's an airport and farmland right behind me and the winds here are wild from the south. I already have a 1.2 Ku dish (but prime focus) for other stuff but I have mine ground mounted, I just wouldn't trust that size on a roof with a lot of exposed flat land behind it.
The new bird going up in 2019, what kind of dish size is required for the Ku footprint in NZ of that?
Thanks for the info in advance. I'm more curious about the routes involved for traffic.
