Broadband Internet has been developed to speed up the Internet web surfing and downloading performance. To use "Broadband Internet", you need to have an account with a "Broadband Internet" Service, plus an account with a local Internet Service Provider. The Internet access inside a local network over a Proxy server cannot be used.

How "Broadband Internet" Works: First, you connect to the Internet via your local Internet Service provider. Secondly, you log on to your Satellite Internet provider. If you are sending a request for a specified web page, the request goes via your local provider to the Satellite provider. They will then grab the Internet data and send this specified web page via Satellite back to your Computer. The speed is dependent on the satellite provider, however the WinTV-NOVA card is specified to receive and filter up to 40Mbit/s of Data.
