Don't worry about the Southern Hemisphere, geostationary satellites 
sit over the equator, by definition.  However, of more concern is 
coverage of the _Eastern_ Hemisphere...   However, if the Intelsat 
deal goes ahead, then it's quite possible we'll have multiple birds 
to enable near global coverage, from what I've read here....
