    I wonder how much it will cost. 15Mbit/s download speed is quite good, but I am a little disturbed by this statement:

    That's hogwash!

    Clearly that person who declined to be named is a marketing weenie/bean counter who only cares about profits. The satellite could care less how many subscribers - it only cares about total bandwidth going through it.

    What he is really saying is this: "We could provide 15Mbit/s second download speeds to each subscriber, but instead, we are going to limit each to 5Mbit/sec then sucker... err, I mean sign up 2 more subscribers at 5Mbit/s. So we get 3 times the subscription fees every month."

    So when he says "so the system can take on more capacity" he clearly means "more paying customers" and not greater bandwidth capacity.
