Up and down. As a result of the "up" part the dish must be installed
by an individual with the appropriate licensing.
Bell ExpressVu is cancelling their satellite service June 30, 2005
if I remember the date correctly, and they are a "down only"
Apparantly DirecWAY is also available in Canada, which is another
two way satellite system. So far all prices I have found hover in
the $70 to $130 range depending on the package. In some cases
the packages were almost double the price offered in the states.
But keep in mind I am investigating this over a dial up connection
and it is slow going to collect all data :) I will publish findings
here when complete.
Thus far I have found satellite prices in NA extremly costly.
Europe offers identical services at rates that meet or beat
terrestrial based DSL offerings. Only isses are, of course,
latency and VPN issues.

Any word if the new Telsat service will offer upstream and downstream
via the dish? I has thought the media suggested the new satellite is
supposed to offer this (I don't know when or how much....)
