Rural broadband company launches new satellite, expands service

A new satellite's now providing more rural broadband service to customers in the mid-South and southeast, according to a company report.

WildBlue Communications announced on Monday the successful start of broadband service on a third satellite, EchoStar's AMC-15. The new satellite, will serve customers in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia and Arkansas.

The move allows WildBlue to offer better availability of its broadband service to new customers in many areas of the continental U.S. where customer demand has been the highest.

"Broadband Internet service becomes more essential every day, especially in rural America. By adding AMC-15 to our network, WildBlue is making an aggressive move to serve more customers who have no other options beyond dial-up service," says David Leonard, CEO of WildBlue. "We intend to keep expanding our satellite network to meet the demand for high-speed Internet service everywhere.

"No matter who you are or where you live, a fast, reliable link to the online world is vital," he adds.
