it looks like we will be lucky to get 2mb in the areas we are looking at — im going to want something
better than that especially if i am working from home.

I found an interesting alternative using bi-directional satellite

i wondered if anyone knows much about this kind of service — is it what its cracked up to be?
Are there other alternatives i should take a look into?
