WildBlue is aggressively entering the Enterprise Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) Market with its high-speed Internet access via satellite
December 21, 2005
DENVER -- WildBlue Communications announced today that it is aggressively entering the Enterprise Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) Market with its high-speed Internet access via satellite. The company will begin offering enterprise class high speed, two-way wireless satellite-delivered products and services at compelling price points to small and medium enterprises (SMEs), telecommuters and specialized industries, such as retail, financial, telemedicine, energy, remote monitoring, federal, state and local government, disaster recovery, homeland security and other markets beginning the first quarter of 2006.
The company plans to establish a strong presence in the VSAT Enterprise Market with low cost equipment and affordable pricing. WildBlue and its distributors will offer the service levels and value-added services expected from Enterprise customers.
WildBlue has initially contracted with four nationwide Value Added Resellers (VARs) to offer WildBlue's equipment and monthly high speed Internet service. The VARs will handle all sales, installation and service for their individual subscribers. The four VARs that WildBlue has contracted with are:
Ground Control, based in California, is a leading provider of mobile and fixed satellite Internet access and application solutions for business, small business, enterprise, government and educational clients;
OptiStreams, based in California, is a leading provider of fixed and mobile satellite services for business, enterprise, government agencies and federal contractors;
Broad Sky Networks, based in Oregon, offers aggregated broadband satellite services that allow their clients to receive and their channel partners the ability to deliver secure, cost effective business class broadband internet connectivity, anywhere in the United States;
Amtech, based in Virginia, provides nationwide service, and is experienced in multi-site businesses such as oil & gas, financial, convenience stores, and restaurants.
"WildBlue is ready to take the success of our low-cost, high volume consumer platform and hit the traditional VSAT market full force," said Dave Leonard, CEO of WildBlue. "We believe that with our low price points for both equipment and monthly service we can grow the Enterprise VSAT Market, and we are eager to begin working with Ground Control, OptiStreams, Broad Sky Networks and Amtech to offer WildBlue to small and medium enterprises across the country. We hope to add other VARs in the coming months."
