If you have a choice for broadband other than satellite, the vast majority of people are going to take it.
Conditional Remark - "choice for broadband."
Low quality DSL does not fit into that definition...but newest satellite birds do these days.
They don't fit into the FCC definition. The next update to the definition could very possibly count out satellite and all DSL other than VDSL entirely. Possibly a real upload requirement too. The FCC is getting desperate to look like they are doing something. Pretty much no one believes they are doing anything at all. So I would not be shocked if the FCC raised the bar by a large margin the next time around. Try to prove themselves.
