one of our branch connected to the head office via lease line . it seems to be OK . just i am thinking of getting another secondary connection . issue is saterlite technolgy good for internet  but our internal application access wise very slow and getting time outs .

some are saying that high letency is the issue on saterlite . but lease line working ok .

why is that data ip VPN(lease line ) woring and saterlite having that issue

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.
