My understanding is that there are problems with TCP/IP via satellite, so
that may not be an option at this point. Something about the packets not
being sent correctly when they have to go thru a satellite.

I'm sure that with all the money to be made on servicing the Internet,
though, that the big players will put in the kinds of lines (fiber, etc)
necessary to allow them to continue making their bucks. :)
