Do I need a phone line for uploads like satellite systems?

Not at all. Total Highspeed uses bi-directional antennas that can send and receive from one of over 140 communication and water towers in our coverage area. Since a phone line is no longer needed, many customers cancel their traditional phone service and use common and simple Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone services. Businesses can benefit from phone services from one of our VoIP vendor partners. Our ground-based radio systems are also able to deliver much lower average latency than most comparable satellite systems. That gives our Internet connections the ability to provide clear sounding, high quality calls.
