> 500ms RTT which I do not believe.

Try more like 500-2000

I've been on both Telstar 7 and GE satellites in their network and it's

NOC/CS is a pain to work with.  

Major problem though.  Not only do you have to deal with RAIN fade at
your locations, but they only have one uplink facility and when they get
"covered" everyone in the network is dead.  They have no back-up's.

You have to RPA/HPA (proxy) all your HTML traffic and E-Mail, FTP,
TELNET are VERY SLOW since it doesn't use their HTML proxy.
