VSAT - Streaming from Muddy Fields, and other Fibreless Locations
Contributed by Jon Gilbert   

When an event location is selected, the main criteria for selection often doesn't consider how many Mbps of terrestrial connectivity exist for a production's Live Webast. This is probably a good thing, or Glastonbury would be held at the NEC and called Birmingham.  

Sometimes, there simply isn't the time to pull in fibre where it didn't previously lie, and other times, there simply isn't the budget to pay "Non-Descript British Telecommunications Company Notorious for Missing Lead Times by Massively Unfunny Margins" or whoever, what they might require to run fibre from the nearest exchange. In these instances, VSAT represents a valuable tool.
