Thank you for your interest. I have much to learn about the various systems and their capabilities before I can set on a specific plan. My immediate need is to maintain reliable telephone & internet contact with business clients in Canada, with an ability to download/upload data files of 1 to 10MB, albeit not frequently (i.e. not a particularly significant monthly throughput). To stay current, I will also be downloading business software, patches, etc. Longer term, we will be setting up a new tourism-oriented business with luxury accommodation including broadband internet access, teleconferencing etc.
If you can point me to some "Satellite for Idiot's" type publications it would be most helpful. At this time the various options do not mean much to me. Given the remote location, I imagine that not all of the Kbps rates are achievable, or are they? Is the "Express Service" an alternate to the table of rates?
Immediate questions include: where do I buy the equipment? how will it be installed?
