Satellite Internet?

Quagmire points us toward an article about new satellite-delivered internet in Japan.  At 155Mbit/sec., the service allows rural users to get high-speed internet just by hooking up a small satellite dish.  In the event that you require 1.2Gbit/sec. (!), a 5 meter antenna is required (!!!).  The other benefit is that internet service will not be subject to earthquakes, Gojira, and other natural disasters, allowing for more reliable contact with services and news.
