I have heard that with the land based BGAN terminals you can maintain a satilite connection while the boat floats around at anchor. Does anyone have first hand BGAN experience on a sailboat? How well does it work while at anchor? How well does it work while underway on a straight course?

There was one ARC boat that claimed they got internet on a BGAN land terminal while underway in the middle of the Atlantic.
