In this work we are interested to investigate how the Geostationary (GEO) satellite can be used to employ efficiently High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) technology supporting Multimedia Broadcast/Multicast Service (MBMS) in a scenario in which the terrestrial network is not available. An exhaustive simulation campaign has been carried out with the aim to determinate the Satellite-HSDPA (S-HSDPA) performances in different radio channel conditions. In particular, a Good/Bad Channel model has been taken into account to achieve a specific radio information and to be able to evaluate the maximum date rate that can be obtained by S-HSDPA.
