    Feels like it's dragging most of the time.

    I don't know the US ISP's... was Comcast fast / faster?

    Yes, MUCH. Comcast is cable vs dsl phone line.
    If you look through, many other people have posted Comcast speeds on this thread.

    Mine, actually good for satellite. Sometimes worse, this is as good as the download speed gets, upload sometimes better. Ping is the killer with satellite as duplex communication means 4 trips for the signal, 2up/2down. Even at the speed of light a long trip.

    You need to live in a really tall building so the signal doesn't have as far to travel

    Ha, good one! Maybe I could shave a ms off it. Would kind of defeat the purpose though because then I could probably have something better than satellite. Think I'll stay where I'm at.
