(obviously, due to the design of the data requests) extreme latency, relative to online gaming.

Satellite is EXTREMELY slow for gaming - the latency is so bad, you're better off using a 56K modem.

File downloads themselves will hover in the DSL upstream speeds - about 250kbps.

Installation might cost you an arm and a leg - when I checked into it (2 years ago), the installation fee was $600 and they made you get the 'professional' installation. I tried telling them that I installed tactical satellite systems and I knew my way around setting it up - but they wouldn't budge.
