Submission + - Alternative Broadband Delivery Systems

polyp2000 writes: Soon I will be moving to the country. I have a possible issue in that broadband speeds are not that brilliant. Since I will be working from home a fair chunk of time and its looking likely im not going to be able to get cable internet — i've been looking at
other possibilities for getting decent speeds. Most places with internet over phone line
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?
