Not a lot of data flowing comparatively, but it is their only option so
it is more of a "mission critical" thing than a backup.

Also high latitudes are problematic as far as your link budget to
geostationary satellites goes in the first place. Switching to an
alternative satellite in the event of a failure may be more challenging
as a result.
