Rider I have heard all the negatives that have been posted -- I am a DirecTV user and have DSL internet.

But on your question -- take a look at
http://www.wildblue.com/

The only person I know who has satellite Internet is one to research and study things like this in detail. My friend is very happy with Wildblue. He does zero gaming (so latency is not an issue), but he had a medium complex web site that is very attractive. He also does some web site design work --

I suggest to contact whom every you seriously consider and ask for some email addresses on people in your area -- that way you can ask about rain as an issue.

With DirecTV we occasionally have rain issues, but I think the really issue is not the rain so much as water/rain on tree leaves. I live in a bit of a hole and my "view" of the satellite is through the tops of some 60 foot oak trees. (I have only had rain issues when the trees have leaves -- which is most of the year in Atlanta.)
