Shared broadband satellite solutions take advantage of the fact that IP traffic is very bursty in nature. That is, applications require short bursts of information requesting data, followed by the download of the requested information, then a period of inactivity as that information is reviewed and worked with by the user.
This creates a great deal of idle or wasted bandwidth. This characteristic of IP makes it possible to share bandwidth among multiple users, effectively reducing costs and increasing efficiency.
