The first of three Sky Muster satellites, costing the government $500M 
each, has been launched to supply broadband to remote communities. But 
already there is worry the system will become quickly overloaded.

Is there going to be a system to provide consumers with useful 
information for managing use, or will the current system continue, where 
everyone is encouraged to download cat videos and then complain that 
their children do not have bandwidth for education?
