Is Satellite Internet good for video calls?

Satellite internet is good for making video calls. Viasat is a satellite internet provider and has a number of plans that offer speeds from 12 Mbps to 100 Mbps, which is enough to have video calls. Whether you need to make a video call to your family, or if you need to do it for work from home, Viasat has the plans necessary to do what is needed. The only issue you may have with video calls using satellite internet is the latency. Latency is the delay in signals being transmitted from one place to another. It happens to be that those places are your house and a satellite in space which is about 22,300 miles about the earth’s surface. Even though these signals travel at the speed of light, it does take a half second to a second to receive the signal back. This means during a video call your call may lag for just under a second. This isn’t a huge issue with video calls because you can still communicate, but if you are gaming online it might be the difference between losing and winning. Satellite internet offers enough speed to be able to make video calls and whatever activities you need to do simultaneously.
