This technique has been reported by many users to enhance the "snappiness" of browsing with these high latency connections.
It seems that Satellite Return Systems (SRS) get more of a benefit than Dial Return Systems (DRS) from this tweak, because of the greater latency with SRS.
Try reducing your browser's cache to 1mb size.
In IE, go to Tools -> Internet Options. Under "Temporary Internet Files" press the "settings" button. Under "Temporary Internet Files Folder" change the number in the box to 1. Press OK, then OK again.

- I tried to change the disk space to 1mb but it defaults back to 8mb, how can i make it stay on 1MB
- I have windows XP Pro....when I try to change the number to 1, it tells me that the number has to be between 8 & 1024??
