that's what I want...detail. not listed anywhere I found
Yes, that is the legal explanation... but the reality of satellite internet is that you will often be far below the stated speed... the "up to" is just an advertising gimmick to get you to sign up... which you wouldn't do if you had any other choice for internet connection... Satellite is not good for playing games because of high latency, not good for downloading video (small/costly data allowance). Reading emails, surfing the web and shopping is about all it's good for... and if it's raining, not even that, in my experience.
Well all companies (satellite, DSL, & Cable) use "Up to" as many many many things can cause your speed to slow (your particular setup, the router, number of devices, overall traffic which DSL & Cable gets just as well). With that said due to a high ping rate we OPENLY admit that gaming may be a frustrating experience for some users as well as how streaming can be limited due to the data limits.

Make 100% certain you read the fine print!!! The advertised UP TO speeds I rarely see, they use the "overall traffic" IE we oversold our bandwidth language in their contract to cover the slow speeds you will undoubtedly experience, and when you run out of data, wow then there is no bottom to the speeds you might see. My advice is to read the ENTIRE contract, and you cannot trust what the salesperson tells you to be true, they will leave out details if you let them.
