Re: Estimate of satellite vs. Land-based traffic

Satellite transport is common mainly in areas where land based
infrastructure is not feasible. In developed nations this is almost
exclusively the case. Satellite latency is far too high to rely on it
for routine communications unless used as a last resort.
