Most satphone handhelds only provide you with a 2.5 Kbps connection. The first analog phone-line modems were 56 Kbps and the average webpage in 2017 was about 3 MB, implying it would almost take three hours to load the average homepage on a satphone.

If you are in need of downloading GRIB-files or in need an internet connection, enabling ‘real’ e-mail, WhatsApp, sending files and pictures and/or basic browsing, a satellite terminal / modem is the solution you need.
