The latency is so high because it has to travel wirelessly over such a long distance.
Satelites are around 22,000km in space. The signal has to go there and back to earth so it travels on average, 44,000 km.
Satelite is much slower than wire speed.

Satalite is usually purchased by speed. You pay more for higher speed.

There is more latency in satalite. The bandwidth is the same if you get 256 of each, but satalite has the latency. Screws up our vpn and makes it much slower.
