We are hopefully going to move up into the mountains in Colorado for half the year to a place where the only option for TV is satellite and have somewhat settled on Dish Network.

At this spot, there is a 3G cell phone tower that works fine for phone calls but the cell internet is very slow and limited.

My wife has recently started using zoom for half hour to a few hour internet meetings and the cell phone connection for sure will not support this so Im thinking I will also need satellite internet. I dont think I have any other options other than satellite for TV and internet is either Sat or cell. Second half the year is spent in Western Arizona.

So first question is does the satellite internet latency or delay mess up zoom meetings where in one case, everyone is chatting with each other. Zoom is almost the whole reason for satellite internet.

Second, Im wondering if I go with this setup, can I set up the dish antennas at both places (middle of the state in Colorado and Western Arizona) and just move the box's with me when we change locations..

Hoping for a bundle discount.. Any info appreciated..
