Starband is a residential system and is not very reliable yet especially
for business.  They are having major network problems and plenty of
daily downtimes.  Stay away from them if you can until ECHOSTAR and SB
can get their act together. 

Check out NEWSGROUPS alt.satellite.starband and starband.general for
inside the scoop if you are interested in using SB.
