Has anyone here had the opportunity to try out microcell with Hughes Net satellite internet?
I have signed up for the 1.7K service but the upload speed is in the 200's. It may be too slow.
Let me know your thoughts. Thanks.

If you only want to get voice, and only one call at a time, 256k might be enough (DSL not satellite), worth a try and you can alway return it.

Ok.. I have Hughesnet and an AT&T Micro Cell Tower hooked to it. It does work for data and text. I have barely one bar of EDGE service where I live here in the sticks. I needed to be able to send and receive my 6000 text a month here at home and was tired of missing or not getting my texts unless i'm in that "special" spot! So I bought a micro cell and it absolutely works for just that. I have a home phone and my cell is forwarded to my home phone.. So voice calls are covered.
So for me, the micro cell tower works for my needs using Hughesnet.
