Why is my satellite internet connection so bad?

Why is our satellite internet so bad? I can download a page or two, and then it quits. I have to click each page twice to get it to load. On the other hand, I downloaded Skype in one go, once I got to the right page. What gives?

A bunch of us went in on a satellite system together. There's one dish per about thirty people, but even when nobody else is on, it does the same thing. Sometimes it's fast, like for the first few pages. Mostly it sucks. The way it does it, though, makes me feel like it's a metering issue, or something else. Any suggestions?
