by Staff Writers
Englewood CO (SPX) Oct 01, 2008
EchoStar and its EchoStar Satellite Services have announced that it has entered into an agreement with SkyWay USA to provide transponder service to support SkyWay USA's satellite broadband Internet service. Through the agreement, EchoStar will provide SkyWay USA with domestic Ku-band satellite bandwidth.

"We are pleased to enter into this agreement with SkyWay USA to provide them with critical bandwidth to support their rural satellite internet solution," said Dean Olmstead, President of EchoStar Satellite Services.

"With EchoStar's U.S. fleet of powerful Ku and Ka-band satellites, we were able to provide an immediate solution to help SkyWay USA expand its customer base."

EchoStar's capacity will be used by SkyWay USA to provide high speed satellite internet services to rural America. EchoStar represents a significant source of Ku-band and Ka-band satellite capacity together with satellite-related products and uplink support services.

"We are very excited about our multi-transponder, long-term agreement with EchoStar," said Dwayne Hay, CEO of SkyWay USA.

"Our agreement with this strategic partner gives SkyWay the green light to rapidly deploy our hybrid satellite internet platform while not being concerned about satellite capacity for the next several years."
