CSV_LS1, dunno if it's still the same, but from my past experiences...
Satellite needs to dial-up all the time (yes, you need a modem). It can only download at high speed - not upload (however, this may have changed recently).
The speed varies, it actually depends on the weather - well whether it is overcast or not. When it's overcast the satellite connection isn't as strong and hence the Internet connection is slower (and vice-versa). But of course, you can get the different "prescribed" speed(s) (64k, 256k etc).
For the money it's a total jack-off, but if you need broadband that much (which you obviously do) there isn't too much that can be done in your position.
I hope this helps. But as for how accurate the information is now, I am unsure. Maybe someone else can clarify?
