Great Story on CBS News site

Post#1 » Wed Dec 21, 2016 12:51 pm

The URL for the entire story: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/echostar-launched-to-deliver-high-speed-internet/

Some excerpts:

“It’ll provide capacity primarily for our consumer business in the U.S. as well as additional capacity in Canada, Mexico and other countries in Central America,” Pradman Kaul, the president of Hughesnet, told analysts during a recent conference call.

“Subscriber online time and video consumption have continued to increase,” he said in remarks posted by Spaceflight Now. “And today’s subscribers are looking for faster speeds and higher data caps. With HughesNet Gen5, we’ll be offering more data and materially higher speeds than we are today.”

“We intend to announce our Gen5 service plans and pricing in January, followed by pre-launch marketing. We are obviously very excited about launching the new Gen5 service on (EchoStar 19).”

You're right ... it is a good story about the new satellite.

It's hard to wait for "more details"!

And, it will be interesting to figure out how to get at the coverage in Mexico and Canada.

Sorry for the delay in approving this post ... I don't get notified until after the post is approved and since I'm the one who approves the posts, it's a Catch 22. ;-)
Take care,
