Sounds exciting, David. I'm a network engineer myself, and live way out in the boonies (I can't even get ISDN, much less cable or DSL), so for two very compelling reasons I am interested in Gilat. Transmission speeds themselves are impressive, though in certain situations the latency that satellite data transmission adds may be inconvenient. I hope we are able to see comprehensive performance reviews as a result of the beta period.
I even thought ahead specifically for Gilat - I just hung my two dishes (will be a new Dish subscriber as soon as one of the receivers arrives) over the weekend and ran a third cable into my house for data.
Any new information on Gilat that can be provided would be most welcome.
