Our clients have had good success connecting satellites via the

The key has been understanding how the internet works.

If home office has ISP abc and satellite has ISP xyz there is no way of
determining the number of hops and lag time in advance for planning

For example, we have a client which has a static IP address provided by
their ISP, connected via ISDN 2 channel basic service.  The remote
office uses the same ISP and has very few hops. (pings average 40-50ms)

Anther client has two different ISP's, 21 hops with 10-210ms per hop.

Personally I would stick with a backbone provider and not just a channel
provider.  The clue is .net instead of .com
