A few words about speed: The average speed for a dial up account is about 30 to 40k 35k being average. This being true would make a 512k Starband system 14.6 times faster. Faster is not really the biggest issue with dial up. The big issue with dial up is, it takes several seconds and sometimes several tries to get connected along with frequently being disconnected and having to dial back up. With Starband it's always on and ready for action, and you never get disconnected.
Bad side of Starband. Really there is very little that is bad. Yes it will go out in a real hard rain for a few minutes. Just like a TV satellite system. But this only happens three to four times per year and the total down time for an entire year is less than one hour. When compared to a dial up account Starband is far and above (pun intended)
Travel time $35.00 per hour or any part of an hour.
Non pen roof mount $65.00
Pole mounting of dish $35.00
