In a satellite network, Round Trip Time (RTT) is the time required for a signal to travel from a terrestrial system up to the satellite and back, or for a signal to travel from a satellite down to a terrestrial system and back up to the satellite again.

Hi,

RTT is already explained well in the above posts. I would like to add that VSAT has a minimum 500 ms. You can also read the below article;
