    I'm about to move to a place that has no fast net access and am considering getting a 2- way satellite system. Is anyone here familiar with these things? I'm concerned about their stability and access speed.
    thanks

    All I know is that pings are high so no gaming.

    I use DirecPC satellite return, and as Zedric said say goodby to online gaming. Overall the stability is good, the real problem with satellite is the FAP (Fair Access Policy) which basically cuts your connection to dial up speeds when you hit the bandwidth limit.
    Here's is a great site for more info on satellite:
