They use 2 MB wireless ethernet. As a rule, it is a 128 KBps connection to anywhere outside Satlan, however, you can go faster when doing anything within Satlan eg. If a Satlan customer had an FTP server that you downloaded files from, then the transfer rate would be a lot faster than 128 Kbps.
The amount of data transferred is at this stage uncapped. The speed is fine. Very comparable with aDSL, when aDSL is working properly and not oversubscribed.
I have been very happy with Satlan's connection and service.
For $ 60.00 per month including GST, and with all the extras like static IP Address, you just can't go wrong.

I too am looking at alternatives to DSL.
What sort of speed/traffic caps do Planet have?
ie - is it comparable to DSL? faster/slower? lower/higher[no?] cap?
