Satellite internet for military troops

…..."The WafaNet Freedom 100 package was exactly what our team needed to stay connected to home. Commercial wireless services that were already available in our area were nearly twice as expensive as Wafa's service costs (when split amongst us), and the speed and bandwidth they offer can't even begin to compare.

I had our system up and running in a few hours, and that evening we had four Skype calls running simultaneously with no degradation. I'd highly recommend that anyone looking to order locally provided services perform a thorough cost-analysis first, because I really can't think of a more affordable or customizable service" - Timothy Ames
