It might, but you're not gonna like it.
For one thing, satellite networks are SLOW.
For another thing, you will have a "cap" on how much data you can download per billing cycle. If you go over that limit, Hughes will drop your connection speed, AND you end up paying more for what you down load after you have been "capped."
In effect you end up with a very expensive device that you cannot use....
Cell data plans are very similar.
No iPods has a cellular capibility. They only connect via wifi.
