    Your speeds should double, yes.

    Keep in mind that although the overall speed will increase, your browsing perceived speed will not increase significantly.

    The upload & download speeds will increase. When you request a web page it's like a 80,000 miles travel distant. From your computer to satellite to the NOC then back to the satellite & back to your computer. It's called latency.

    If you are downloading a file or program you are getting a steady stream of data you requested from the server. If you are using the browser you are constantly requesting this page and that page and each time you request something different the request has to go up to the satellite and down to earth, find your request and then send it back to you. This will take time (latency) which is not needed when you are downloading a program or file. For example my anti-virus program sends a request to the server for a update and if the server has a update it sends it without any further information from me. It happens quite fast since there is no back and forth of signal once the initial request is made. A download of a large file will look like the attachment, where browsing will be all broke up with a lot of blank spaces and you would see green send or requests in between the red receive signals. Hope that makes some sense. You can see I was able to download 26.5MB in 3min and 30sec, try that with dial up.
