Professional grade satellite internet service

iDirect Service Plans

Enter the world of performance connectivity through iDirect satellite. If you require a constant high-speed, low-latency, net-neutral, application-tolerant, VPN-optimized, predictable connection perfect for data and phone, then we have your solution.

Ground Control offers high speed, low contention, highly predictable connections for both new and existing VSAT customers. All of our plans include pooled multi-site satellite service for anyone requiring multiple connections under one low-cost sharing plan.

We have vastly fewer users sharing the same connection, so you won’t see your internet speeds slow down when the network is busy. This is just one reason why thousands of organizations install or upgrade their satellite data and phone service with us.

The below rates are for organizations based in North America; we also offer international VSAT connectivity. Please contact us for a tailored quote.

Unlimited, dedicated SCPC iDirect plan details

For those that wish an unshared dedicated channel over the satellite link, Ground Control offers SCPC (Single Channel Per Carrier) service.

Other Satellite Networking Solutions

Ground Control offers a number of satellite networking solutions for your organization, including hybrid, point-to-point, and total private networking. A leased line is often used by our SCPC customers. It’s an open unshared terrestrial channel between our satellite teleport and your organization’s primary network that doesn’t touch the public network.

Satellite Networking Solutions

Dual Matrix service

Ground Control's two North American teleports service two different high-performance satellites that operate independent of each other. With the Dual Matrix service, a single mobile satellite dish may connect with either of the satellites at any time, no matter the plan they subscribe to.

IP Video Streaming Over Satellite - North America

Ground Control offers unshared dedicated data channels over satellite link to the Internet backbone through both of our North American Teleports. These unshared full-speed channels are perfect for reliable streaming of video or other large data transmissions over satellite from any location in North America.

Since the satellite channel is unshared, speeds are predictable and packet loss and drop-outs are mitigated. Best of all, there is no overhead cost, which means if you purchase a fast connection, you will see those speeds. Finally, if you have multiple satellite systems at different locations, you can place any or all of them on the same CIR On-Demand network at no additional cost (great for multi-camera solutions).
