I am looking at getting a satellite internet connection for where I work in east Africa. Vsat seems to be the only option but seems very expensive (about US$15K just for the satellite hardware plus monthly fees of 400 to 1200$ for 64kbps). Does this seem reasonable? I am use to the directTV prices in the US of $400 for the hardware and $70/month for broadband service. What is the difference in hardware that accounts for the cost differences?
Any other suggestions?
Thanks,
Arman
