What are the limits for satellite connectivity?

Although no other technology can match it for coverage, satellite is perceived by many to be slow, expensive and unresponsive. Changing timesHe argues there is a tendency to make sweeping generalisations about satellite communications and treat each variation of the technology as the same. This, he says, ignores recent developments and is founded on the belief that satellite is still only suitable for television. “The cost per bit of satellite might be expensive but you can broadcast and divide
