I donno, maybe they transfer more data nowadays. Like I said, I don't really know, but my guess is that it will still work. You never know unless you try though.

take a look at wild blue. although still sattelite, with crappy latency, it far outperforms previous sattelite offerings like direcway and starband. I have only heard good things about it. Also, the prices ARE reasonable. And even though you get sattelite latency, your pings will be consistent around 600ms which is still doable for gaming and better than most other alternatives (I get 3-4ms over my fiber hehe) I've heard from some people they even got vonage working on it. Also, they have a FAP like all sattelite providers but it is much more reasonable. And it's two way sattelite with very close to promised speeds.
