Caps really half of what they say

40 GB cap is really only 20 GB can only be used between 2 AM and 8 AM. WildBlue has a FAP free time period form 12 AM to 5 AM.

I'd take that if satellite was my only option.

Just have a caching proxy (erm.. Squid) go nuts between 12a-5a. That way, in the morning, all your normal sites will be updated locally and any updates will be available without eating your bucket alive.

This would definitely benefit households with more than one computer or "Internet connected device".
