  • The airport can connect directly to Tha Intarwebnet, so can be fast. The laws of physics prevent a cruise ship from doing that. Its round-trip signal involves four hops between sea level and orbit, or 35,800 km each for a total of 143,200 km. That's half a second right there. The rest can be easily explained by the satellite data links being contended.
