The BIG difference (advantage) that satellite has is that once it is up there, customers can come from anywhere that the footprint covers - customers could easily be spaced 10-20km apart, the satellite cares not.
With other deployments, they are by necessity geographically focussed. Also, even with the best will in the world, they will leave coverage holes in their areas of operation. A satellite is an excellent means of reaching all of these holes in coverage with a single piece of (space based) hardware.
