Sure you can.  Provided you have the $.  Or you can IMUX sat T1s's to 
approximate whatever speed you really need.

Catch is, the bw x delay product will kill you on these links if you run TCP
sessions and you won't get anywhere near line rate.  There's a company in 
Boulder which used to make a widget for high speed data transfer across sat 
link exactly for this purpose.  Can't remember the name, should be able to 
find them easily though if they're still in business as it has been a few years
since I last touched this stuff...
