Spacenet Awarded $7.5 Million To Provide Broadband Service In Alaska And Hawaii By Rural Utility Service

Relateret indhold

Spacenet Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Gilat Satellite Networks

Ltd. (Nasdaq: GILT) and a leading provider of broadband network

solutions, announced that it has been awarded federal grant funding from

the Rural Utility Service (RUS) under the American Recovery and

Reinvestment Act. The grant will allow it to provide broadband service

to rural unserved markets in Alaska and Hawaii through its “StarBand

Open Skies” initiative. Spacenet will offer its StarBand

broadband-over-satellite service to these regions for $0 down, including

equipment and standard installation, and an entry-level monthly service

fee of $50.

“This grant award is great news for customers in Alaska and Hawaii that

need access to affordable broadband Internet services,” said Spacenet

CEO Andreas Georghiou. “We’re pleased to be able to help provide access

through this special grant funding with our StarBand satellite Internet

options. Since its inception in 2000, the StarBand product line has

focused on providing high-speed Internet service to the most rural areas

without access to alternative options. The RUS recognized the difficulty

and unique challenges in deploying service in these regions and took

appropriate measures to address them. First they increased the subsidy,

and second they selected the StarBand team to implement it. I can speak

for the entire organization when I say we are immensely proud to be part

of this endeavor.”

StarBand is basing its StarBand Open Skies service offerings for Alaska

and Hawaii on custom versions of its Nova 1000 and 1500 products. Both

packages exceed the performance requirements set forth by the RUS for

this program. The Nova 1000 service provides download speeds of up to 1

Mbps and upload speeds of 200 Kbps, and the Nova 1500 service provides

download speeds of up to 1.5 Mbps and upload speeds of 256 Kbps. Both

services also offer value added features including: 10 free hours of

dial access per month for backup or traveling; virus protection; spam

filtering; access to the StarBand Member Portal powered by Google; 24X7

online support; and up to 15 email accounts.
