When I was working with Svalbard, Internet connectivity was through a
satellite link at about 2.5 degrees
elevation looking through a notch in the mountains.  I don't think it
has changed

It has, as Steinar says.

For those interested in the necessary elevation at 78 degrees north, I
found a nice picture of the antennas here:

There aren't any mountains in front of the the antennas.  However there
is a mountain between Isfjord Radio and Longyearbyen (the main
settlement), requiring a relay station on the radio link between these.
