"Wildblue Country"--Broadband for The Rural Lifestyle (BBHR 9/9/2006)
How fast does broadband need to be? Our visit with satellite broadband provider WildBlue, followed by a visit with our son who recently installed the service, helped provide the answer: "a lot faster than you used to have." Wildblue targets the unserved and underserved markets that cable and DSL don't reach. It may be a niche market, but a target market of 12-15 million homes and offices isn't too shabby.

We share a few impressions of the changes, plus what we heard in meetings with three distinctly different broadband service providers. SatDrive has a very clever way of allocating satellite bandwidth.
