Satellite is notorious for high latencies anyway. A friend of mine with satellite can do almost no gaming on it because of this problem.

Alternative forms of broadband such as satellite and fixed wireless are great for people who can't get cable/dsl, but they have their share of problems that makes them so that they should ONLY be used as a last resort if cable/dsl aren't available.

Latency - The time it takes for a packet to cross a network connection, from sender to receiver.
If you want to get technical. lol
