I don't see how a copper wire can be faster than a satalite, and how many fibre optic cables would a single satalite? I am sure by the time you have messed around laying cables, you could have an infinitly faster satalite connection. Fibre cables have 2 values either on or off, but satalites can use a baud rate which would make them faster and capable of more data than a fibre cable.
In the UK we have both satalite and cable, the satalite carrys more channels and more HD channels than the cable TV network ever will as it has more capacity.
And as for my wanting to know, well that is just sheer curiosity,
