Re: Latency

said by not :

Sat's inherently slow latency will always make satellite ISP service horrible. No one in their right mind should be using it.

It is better than dial-up unless playing online games or VOIP services.

Unless they can get WISP?

Most people can at least get some 3G cell service now where they live. If you live somewhere that you just can't get anything , then why the hell did you move out there?

The people I know who aren't all over the internet and were born into situations where it just wasn't something they could get easily don't really care if they have it or not. So the whole "dial up" comparison is just as out dated as bringing it up each time someone mentions sat internet.

The majority of the country will end up getting internet thanks to LTE type networks anyway. Far cheaper than last mile fiber and much faster than the horrible latency of sat.

"So the whole "dial up" comparison is just as out dated as bringing it up each time someone mentions sat internet."

I know someone on here who keeps saying basically the exact same thing about cable when complaining about cable (Charter in particular) and their stupid current practices. He's always trying to tell people to leave. As if everyone in the country has multiple options for anything faster than dial up.

For some people, this could be the best thing in the world, especially if it's not as ridiculously priced as Hughes or Wildblue crap!
