Satellite delay is the noticeable latency which occurs due to the speed of light, when sending data to and from satellites, especially the much further out geosynchronous satellites. Bouncing a signal off one geosynchronous satellite takes about a quarter of a second, which is enough to be noticeable, but relaying data between 2 or 3 such satellites increases the delay further.
