This from Wikipedia: "BBB purchases broadband capacity from a variety of satellite companies, sells or rents to the end user the necessary hardware to access the internet (and installs the necessary equipment, if requested) and then provides an ongoing satellite broadband service on the terms of an airtime tariff selected by the customer." They're currently making such deals currently at a rate of one every couple of months and the bigger they get the better their bargaining power in such deals.
You can also find out much more on the company website. Also, if you Google "bigblu broadband" there are several other links.
