We received in the mail today a card offering the new exede satellite internet service from Viasat: This is a new approach to satellite internet for the home by a company that has been doing commercial stuff for years. They bought WildBlue to have access to a retail distribution operation, but this is new in terms of satellite technology. If you need a service like this you might want to check out their web site which indicates this: There are data caps but most who have been stuck with a dial up or nothing can live with the lower cap if you don't plan on much streaming. Like all satellite internet, there will be latency (when you click on something, time passes while the data stream goes up to the satellite and down to their ground station and then the data stream back to you makes the same trip). But it is much faster than dial up. To some who have access to DSL, cable, and other competition, the cost will seem high. But here in a rural area where we have no DSL and just lucky access to cable, my Comcast internet service is higher than the low tier. In January we had a thread based on a Dish news release indicating that they were going to bundle it. In that thread I noted: I still get no indication of a bundle with Dish when I go to the Dish web site.
