If its the only option you can get, it is better then dialup in a few ways. People with remote linux boxes should note that the latency makes it near impossible to do anything in a remote shell since you'll have to wait about 2 seconds for a response to any key you type. Also, if you dish gets out of alignment, you'll have to pay about $150 for them to come out and re-point it. If you get the installer that I got you'll want to stay far far away from this product.
