What is Ka-band?

Broadcasting satellites operate primarily in the Ku-band frequencies, offering a wide geographical coverage with a single footprint. Many satellite broadband services operate in the Ka band, which has the advantage of being much more concentrated than the Ku band and can transmit more information with narrower beams, allowing the frequencies to be reused significantly, making subscription rates much more attractive.

The available and larger amount of bandwidth supports higher transmission flow rates and therefore delivers maximum speeds for subscribers. Ka band higher frequencies also help subscribers to use smaller, less expensive antennas.
