I have heard a few scattered stories about using a satellite-based
Internet connection, e.g., the kind provided by DirecWay. They involve
a large latency in the connection, and I've heard that it can slow the
real-world speed down quite a bit.

Anyone else heard or experienced similar? We're considering a
satellite hook-up for the remote site I've been discussing with Caterina
in another thread. This site would have a small office, a S2S hookup to
the main office, and also allow a C2S connection. I figured I'd start
another thread since it's a mostly different topic although it is
related to the same project for me.

Thanks in advance.
