Latency - TCP

Wouldn't there be an issue with speeds because of the way TCP works (ie ACK's) with the latency of satellite limiting the max speed to something considerably lower than the advertised offerings?

If that was the case, why is Exede doing just fine?

It seems to me HughesNet put a bandaid on their service in the form of a new satellite without upgrading their infrastructure.

They have to clear out HN9000 customers if they want to offer Gen4 on the same satellite down the road.
