Question I posed to Starband: I am interested in your Starband product. My primary application will be for day trading. I need to know all aspects about the reliability of this service since I will be receiving streaming real-time data. I am not able to tolerate service interruptions or delays in data of even a few seconds. A few seconds of delay, or interrupted service could cost me thousands. Please respond as to the suitability of your product. Answer I received: Starband is not recommended for realtime applications or day trading. As a result, these software packages cannot take advantage of these enhancements which are designed to compensate for the delays caused by the 44,000+ miles round trip for the signals. Without this acceleration, many of these packages will either work very slowly or sometimes not at all due to timing issues. What did they Say? I guess I'm stuck with a lousy dial up. It sure is nice living in the middle of PA surrounded by trees and animals, just no decent ISPs.
