As I have said to you, 4,000 users is to many for 1 solution. You need to break it down into community projects of up 500 users per vsat

If you have all 4000 users connected via a terrestrial star into one place then that one place needs an optic fibre link putting in back to the internet.

If the 4000 users are spread across Macedonia then work out how to connect them in groups.  A village, for example, needs one VSAT dish plus a wired or wireless LAN to connect say 20 individuals or a few small businesses.   Medium and large businesses might have their own terminal, but they will mostly be in big town where ISDN, ADSL or cable modems will be feasible.  Don't put satellite where is it not required.

There is no problem supplying asymmetric two way dedicated satellite capacity such as 200kbit/s up + 1 Mbit/s down for example.   See the beam maps on pages like http://www.satsig.net/ivsat-europe.htm

An alternative strategy is many more terminals, each operated with fewer PCs but in shared mode (10:1, 20:1, 30:1 etc.)   The monthly cost per terminal is much less but so is the number of PCs you can reasonably connect before congestion becomes unacceptable.  

Best regards, Eric.
