Internet, said method comprising the steps of: 
receiving a request for data; 
collecting data in response to said request; 

packetizing said collected data into at least two sets of data packets, wherein a first set of 
data packets comprises encrypted data and a second set of data packets comprises a key for 
decoding said encrypted data; 

selecting and addressing a-said first set of data packets for transmission via the Internet; 

selecting and addressing a-said second set of data packets for transmission via a satellite 
delivery system; 

transmitting said first set of data packets via the Internet; and 

transmitting said second set of data packets via said satellite delivery system. 

2. (Canceled) 

3. (Canceled) 

4. (Canceled) 

5. (Previously Presented) The method of claim 1 above, wherein said satellite delivery 
system is comprised of a network processing center with an associated provider antenna and at 
least one subscriber terminal with an associated subscriber antenna.

6. (Original) The method of claim 5 above, wherein said satellite delivery system further 
comprises a satellite. 

7. (Currently Amended) A computer readable medium executing and storing a software 
application for enabling requesting and securely receiving data from the Internet, said software 
application comprising: 

one or more instructions for receiving a request for data; 

one or more instructions for collecting data in response to said request; 

one or more instructions for packetizing said collected data into at least two sets of data 
packets, wherein a first set of data packets comprises encrypted data and a second set of data 
packets comprises a key for decoding said encrypted data; 

one or more instructions for selecting and addressing a -said first set of data packets for 
transmission via the Internet; 

one or more instructions for selecting and addressing a-said second set of data packets for 
transmission via a satellite delivery system; 

one or more instructions for transmitting said first set of data packets via the Internet; and 

one or more instructions for transmitting said second set of data packets via said satellite 
delivery system.

1 1 . (Previously Presented) The computer readable medium of claim 7 above, wherein 
said satellite delivery system is comprised of a network processing center with an associated 
provider antenna and at least one subscriber terminal with an associated subscriber antenna. 

12. (Previously Presented) The computer readable medium of claim 1 1 above, wherein 
said satellite delivery system further comprises a satellite. 

13. (Previously Presented) A system for requesting and securely receiving data, said 
system comprising: 

a first computing element for receiving a request for data; 

a second computing element for collecting data in response to said request; wherein said 
second computing element packetizes said collected data into at least two sets of data packets, 
wherein a first set of data packets comprises encrypted data and a second set of data packets 
comprises a key for decoding said encrypted data; 

a first transmission system for transmitting said first set of data from said second 
computing element to said first computing element via the Internet; 

a second transmission system for transmitting said second set of data from said second 
computing element to said first computing element via a satellite delivery system. 

14. (Canceled) 

15. (Canceled) 

16. (Canceled) 

17. (Previously Presented) The system of claim 13 above, wherein said second 
transmission system is further comprised of a provider antenna at a provider location for 
communicating via satellite signals to a subscriber antenna.

18. (Original) The system of claim 17 above, wherein said second transmission system 
further comprises a satellite. 

19. (Withdrawn) A method for transmitting data, said method comprising the steps of: 
providing data for transmission to a recipient; 

selecting and addressing a first set of data for transmission to said recipient via a first 
transmission method, and 

selecting and addressing a second set of data for transmission to said recipient via a 
second transmission method. 

20. (Withdrawn) The system of claim 19 above, wherein said first set of data is selected 
and addressed for transmission via a wired data transmission network and said second set of data 
is selected and addressed for transmission via a satellite transmission system. 

21. (Withdrawn) The system of claim 20 above, wherein said the first and second sets of 
data are selected and addressed for transmission via the Internet and further wherein the first set 
of data is addressed to follow a first transmission path and the second set of data is addressed to 
follow a second transmission path. 

22. (Withdrawn) The system of claim 19 above, wherein said first set of data is 
addressed to be transmitted via a first frequency and said second set of data is addressed to be 
transmitted via a second frequency. 

23. (Withdrawn) The system of claim 19 above, wherein said first set of data is 
designated to be transmitted at a first time and said second set of data is designated to be 
transmitted at a second time.
