      One thing to note Satellite BB has a huge latency issue, not too much of a problem if you surf but if you want to game then its terrible.

      Some people were slagging off the devs of an online game saying they got pings & latencys of 1000+ ms until it was pointed out to them that they would have due to satellite BB has a 1sec built in lag due to the time it takes to get data to the satellite and back down to the base station and all the people complaining were Satellite BB customers in the US, who do have a Satellite ISP selling the product.

      Possibly why it hasn't taken off as they thought it would as ping etc is getting more important for consumers not less.
