Satellite is far better than either BTL's own service or Coral Cable's, for the simple reason that it's independent of BTL, who are perfectly happy to operate totally illegally with a view to suppressing any competition. Unfortunately although their legal monopoly was terminated, no steps were taken to ensure that other users could have uninterrupted use of the physical facilities built up by BTL, whether at a fair price or at all. Consequently there is still a de facto monopoly, and it's operated by extremely corrupt people.
