Castor Networks VSAT C-band

We cover Africa with 3 VSAT C-band satellites. For C-band, you need a 2.4 or 1.8 meter antenna. C-band has a frequency band of 3.7 – 4.2 GHz for downlinks and 5.925 to 6.425 GHz for uplinks. If it is important to have the highest availability on your connection in areas which are sensitive to rain, then C-band is the ideal option because the C-band frequency is the least senstive to rain fade.
