If you really have no other option then please wait until you can get the new faster service and associated modem/dish that'll be required for this new service.
Would be good to see some one post speeds for satellite. I expect speeds at best will be between 2~3Mbps and will vary just like other contended services.
PING times will be in excess of 700ms so forget about gaming, ssh and remote desktop. Also usage limits will prevent you from doing anything other than basic web browsing and emails!
AVOID SATELLITE IF YOU CAN!
The new 10Mbps service should be coming online Q2 this year.
