Satellite and dial-up are the only options available where I live also. The dial-up finally got so slow that I had to change. HughesNet is not perfect. What really gets on my nerves about it is the 200MB download limit, but it is still a whooole lot beter than AOL dial-up ever was.

They told me it would be where I live last December, but it wasn't. Even if they did run the cables to us, now I'm stuck with a two year HughesNet contract.

You're getting about the correct speed. 1.5 Mbps is 1.5 megabits per second. There are 8 megabits in a megabyte (MB). So your internet is only 187.5 kilobytes per second.
