Brace yourself - it's $60/mo - there's a problem with it, which is latency. 
Your bits have to travel 26k miles out to space, then back, and then the 
second round trip for all the hand shaking and so forth. Once a connection is 
established, it's supposed to pretty fast, but, if you're doing a lot of 
jumping around from site to site, it's reported to be annoying. Things that 
are associated with time-outs also tend to occur more frequently. This is all 
second-hand info from a friend who had it, when I was investigating getting 
it in rural VA. Then they brought wireless broadband in via land based 
transmission which was quite nice - it was also $60/mo, though
