Re: What's the latency gonna be?

said by iansltx:

If they're using ViaSat-1, around 600ms. The new HughesNet sat is probably similar. It'll get worse over tiem though.

That's awful. They can't do nothing about that right? That has to deal with the distance between the satellite and earth. It's like millions and millions of miles

No not millions. Hell the moon is only 240,000 miles away.

Not millions.. more like 22,230mi. But you can't beat the laws of physics. There will always be that much latency no matter what you do.
