Re: Satellite Internet Service



fixed

I use Hughes satellite everyday.  It's better than dialup.  Wildblue was
supposed to be better, but the more I read, the more I think it was just
because there were fewer users.

Windows VPN doesn't work on satellite.  too much lag.

Strangely, Cisco VPN client does work.  Although slowly.

an
option either. Satellite has a huge lag time but does work.
