Yes it has.

Peering issues also crop up between networks to cause issues and I'm not sure it's a safe assumption that an entire stake will all use the same provider (my stake includes parts of 3 states with no universal cable provider or ILEC).
The nice thing about many of these solutions is that they do not need to be on the same provider. You just need a spot that uploads the media and another spot to download the media.

The only problem with Stake Conference is that, according to my dad who is the stake tech specialist, the church handbook says that Stake Conference cannot be recorded to media. Transmitted to another building is ok though, just not recorded.
