There is a general opinion among wireline carriers that satellite broadband as an access technology is inferior to other sources of Ethernet. The perception is that satellite broadband has serious latency problems (time delays) and jitter issues that make it inadequate to support advanced applications, particularly VoIP. There is also a general perception that satellite Ethernet is costly to establish and that it is rarely price competitive with other sources of Ethernet, except in very remote locations.

This article by CCG Consulting and iDirect Technologies discusses the issues facing satellite broadband and the hardware and software solutions developed by iDirect. With the iDirect solution satellite data can compete quite well in cost with other sources of Ethernet.
