The ping time is long because the signal has to travel from your dish, to the satellite, back to a ground station, then find the server your are pinging. The return signal then has to travel all the way back.

This is at least 22,326 miles (times 4) , likely slightly more as the Sat isn't directly overhead.

Speed of light is 186282 miles / second. So you have at least 500ms of light speed travel added to your ping time, no matter who your provider is. The fact that it works at all is pretty amazing.  ;D

Of course if they mount the dish on a wobbly post, and their customer support is useless, then things are just going to get worse.  :D
