Re: OT/ Satellite Broadband
Dpends on what you mean by cheaper - here (Ireland) satellite broadband is a
lot more expensive than ADSL.
Apart from costs, most of the problems are to do with high latency, the
impact of which depends on what you are doing:.
Surfing and email - ok IME, about the same as ISDN.
Downloading files - excellent.
Online gaming - forget about it.
Peer to peer networking - forget about it
VOIP - no personal experience but reports seem mixed.
