I have a small business customer who needs high speed access.  Cable is out of the question from a price standpoint.  DSL and ISDN are an option, but I wanted to look at Digital satallite first.  If it were as fast as a cable modem, this would be the best situation since he wants to connect from both his business and his home and this would require only 1 account.  My question is "how fast is a satallite connection and can he use 2 different locations on the same account?

You have to determine what sort of requirements you have.
Satellites are great if you only want to download information. As the web requests you send are very small, but the webpage in comparsion is larger. A modem general is sufficent for uplink.

Satellite connection speeds range depending on the plan you are on. 128K to 2+ Mbit

Things you should be aware of is, that satellite suffer from something that is called rain fade. Which basically just mean that when you have heavy cloud cover or rain, the connection may drop out, depending on your dish angle and size of dish.

Most providers will tell you that it does not matter, but trust me, I used to work for a satellite company, and I know it does.

As for using an account at work and at home, it should not matter, when you authenticate it binds the MAC address of your satellite card to an IP address, so unless that map your username to the MAC address on your satellite card, it should work from home as well.

Also, check to see if the ISP provides a backup service for you in case the satellite connection drops out.
