SKY MUSTER is a geostationary satellite, the first of two huge communications satellites to set up a nationwide broadband system to ensure every Australian home and business is connected by 2020. The network will eventually reach eight million homes and businesses, many through terrestrial fiber connections, but around 200,000 customers will require satellites to achieve broadband speeds. From their positions 22,000 miles (35,406 km) above Earth, the satellites will each broadcast through 101 spot beams covering all of Australia and offshore territories. Users can expect to see download speeds up to 25 megabits per second, and upload rates of 5 megabits per second. Both satellites satellites broadcast in Ka-band signals, and the satellites are so large the manufacturer had to introduce new antenna boom designs to fit inside rocket's fairing enclosure. Six-year-old Australian primary school student Bailey Brooks selected the Sky Muster name for the first NBN satellite after a nationwide competition.
