Satellite technology for the car.
I recently got a job at a DirecTV call center and it got me to thinking about the concept of satellite technology.
DirecTV offers a service for people to install in their vehicles, which would be ideal for truckers, full time RVers, or parents wanting to entertain their kids on long trips, etc.
KVH is the manufacturer of the equipment necessary to recieve mobile TV service, but the website mentioned something about satellite phone and internet service. It looks like it's intended primarily for boat owners, but I was wondering if it's lucrative to go with satellite internet for cars. If so, how would it compare with mobile broadband service offered by Verizon, Sprint, etc?
Speaking of satellite phone, I was wondering how this works. I assume it's not up to par with a cell phone since it's not discussed a lot.
