Are their any satellite Internet options for the budget traveler?

Browsing Google for satellite Internet options doesn't reveal much in the way of options that cost less than the price of a car; everything out there seems stale, like it's been around since late 90s.
Are there any solutions for satellite Internet for the backpacker/independent traveler? Something that can either be rented our purchased cheaply, with a monthly fee? Say, less than $1,000 for the hardware, and less than ~$100 a month?
Something that could, you know, fit in a backpack.
Speed isn't quite an issue -- I know Internet via satellite is mostly slow, and I'm OK with that.
Personal anecdotes welcome!
