I haven't used those sat providers, but I do use 4G a lot with very little
issue. It takes a big cap to get through a month, but speeds are usually
fine and even latency isn't bad. As long as my signal is reasonable
(doesn't even have to be good) I can VPN, browse, watch videos, and even
game (MMOs, anyway) via it.
