    The people that need low global latency and would give a lot of cash to get it even lower don't require a ton of bandwidth, and could all peer with a small number of receivers in dense areas.

    The article doesn't mention the lower latency that the satellite constellation could achieve, which would be useful for HFTs, gamers, etc. Those would probably be the biggest sources of revenue...

    Hey, have you thought about making the default comment sort something other than just "most votes"? This isn't a really big problem for me, but it's a little annoying seeing the top comments stay at the top most of the time and get the most votes and activity and take up so much space. I guess what I'd really want personally is a feature that auto collapses 2nd or 3rd level comments, but still, is the current default comments sorting algorithm ok in the long term?
