Broadband hope for rural areas

Improved satellite links


A company
hopes to change the prevailing view that Internet satellite links are too expensive and slow to provide an effective public service to rural areas.

ViaSat wants to launch a service in three years that promises to expand high-speed Internet services to rural Americans who cannot get access through cable or telephone companies. The ViaSat-1 satellite is being billed as the world's highest-capacity broadband satellite. It can provide 10 times the capacity of those in orbit today.

This means that it can provide faster speeds anywhere in the U.S. ViaSat plans to resell satellite broadband capacity through existing Internet service providers.

No word on its price yet.
