Is it possible to have two dishes and travel with the modem from Canada to Florida ? Could the xplornet satellite signal be received in Fort-Lauderdale ?

Thank you.

Nope. Unlike HughesNet, your connection rides one spot beam only. I  think XploreNet uses beams 1 through 6 and  8. Florida is under 43 and 45. This is a very rough figure, but consider each spotbeam to have a footprint of maybe 400 miles. Once you leave the effective footprint of your assigned beam, no more connection.
