Are there ever any deals on satellite internet?

I was wondering if there are ever any deals for satellite internet? $600 plus for hardware and installation seems a little steep. Is it worth waiting for any good deals? Do they ever happen?
Thanks

Yes, the only one I know of is not to get one. I looked real hard 18 months ago and could not find a deal. Try ebay and pick up a used one. Friend of mine had one and I picked dial-up or a year before cable came.

If you buy a used system are you allowed to install and activate it yourself and then just pay the monthly fee of $60? Also, does the charge that direcway charges you cover the isp or is that additional?
