Satellite ISP: We're getting screwed

said by "fiercewireless.com" :

The company has announced consumer packages offering download speeds up to 20 Mbps with upload rates of 4 Mbps to 6 Mbps, making it the fastest satellite packages available in Europe, according to Eutelsat.

The Paris-based company claims that its new Tooway service offers the fastest satellite-based consumer broadband speeds in Europe, and as a bonus includes unlimited 24-hour data downloads. This unlimited download offer, however, is only available to those that subscribe to the 20 Mbps service, the only other option being a lower-cost 2 Mbps service.

Monthly pricing for the Tooway service ranges from €20 up to €50 depending on the download speed and data bundle selected. This is expensive compared with fibre and LTE, but significantly cheaper than previous satellite broadband services, maintains Eutelsat.

So, they're getting 20/6Mbps UNLIMITED data and pay 50 Euros while we're getting ripped off.

What the hell you two, and I mean HughesNet and Wildblue?
