I only have dial up in my area and I'm now trying out an AT&T air card before I commit. So far it seems that this isn't much faster with the speed it offers. So now I'm thinking of satellite.

So what are the pros & cons?

With most companies you have a download limit per month, as in a bandwidth cap. It's really expensive, and you can't game with it because of your high ping rate.

Pro's? It's high speed internet where you now have dial up. That's about the only plus I can think of.

About the only merit to satellite is that it available as long as you can hit a satellite from your location.

It is slow, it is expensive, and as mentioned it has caps.
