I think it’s widely accepted that wires or fibre optic cabling actually transmit data. Satellites, since they don’t exist, can’t. I suppose the dishes can receive signals bounced off the ionosphere via tha HAARP or some other land based transmitter.
This story shows that an old fashioned cable is required for any serious internet connectivity. Tying it in with the satellite hoax is to either reinforce the hoax of satellites or to create confusion as to what technology is doing what.
