Re: Satellite TV and Internet onboard?

Last I read up on satellite Internet service, to use it like you might at home would cost thousands per month in data charges. 3G or 4G cellular Internet access is very good, unless you have to download huge files or HD video files. I'm using 3G on my iPad, sitting in my salon right now. For this stuff, I can't tell the difference from being on my home computer. I've also received a good 3G signal several miles offshore, but it does depend on coverage and how close the antenna is to shore.
