Why would anyone buy broadband from a satellite company?
Because they live in the sticks; get TV from the satellite company; and can get no landline connections faster than POTS dial-up data.
My retired parents fit into this category. They can't get DSL on a land line. There is no cable. There is no TV reception. So it's satellite TV and WildBlue internet for them. WildBlue is both expensive and slow, I might add, but it is better than nothing.
