Proving Gig Speed

Would having local CDN caches help satellite-based
providers? Sure...

Could you explain that? Do you mean logically near the
ground stations?

I mean physically in the ISP's backbone.

They would use the satellite link for cache-fill, but then deliver
content locally. This should speed things up a great deal.

Having the cache on the other side of the satellite link doesn't help at
all, since the biggest latency tax is on the satellite link itself.

I had a funny thought... CDN in the satellite. :slight_smile:

:slight_smile: - don't give them ideas, hehe...
