Well... As lame as satellite internet is maybe some of you have not been into rural parts of nebraska for instance. There isnt anyone or anything around for miles and nothing but corn. I seriously doubt people in areas like that have access to DSL. I know there is wireless phone service but data is about as slow as dialup in those areas with wireless.
I guess if I lived in a place like that satellite internet would be great. Not like you have any other options.
