This is similar, I pay around $80 a month for crap sat internet where I rarely break 1mb/s (mega bit).... I would gladly pay $100 for 50mbps. And my typical ping is > 800ms... So 40ms sounds much better. Even if I get 25mbps and 80ms ping it's still 10-20x better than what I have available.It's really not too bad. My parents are in a rural area and the only "broadband" they can get is through a Verizon Hotspot or the standard awful satellite internet. They're currently spending $200 a month for 2 phones and the hotspot through Verizon and we all know how their "unlimited data" is so if they can drop that they're not really spending any additional cash on a monthly basis. $500 is a bit of an outlay but it sounds like it will be worth it.
