I am in an area where I can only get Satellite or a HSDPA service.  I
went with Optus.  I wouldn't recommend them to others.  I am not sure
what satelite services you are looking at, but generally the latency is
so bad voip isn't an option.  I am not a big fan of Telstra, but they do
have the best HSDPA network in the country - by a country mile :)

When I looked at it a sat service with decent speed and quota was as
expensive if not more expensive than Telstra's Next G products.  Their
wifi router is pretty decent too, we used one at StixCampNewstead a few
weeks back and there were no complaints from the 50 or so geeks there.

VoIP works well over the next G network too

Don't just reject an option cos there is the orange T on the box :)
