StarBand Benefits

One Antenna, Two-Way: StarBand uses a single satellite dish antenna for receiving AND for sending information—no telephone connection is needed. Plus, the StarBand antenna can accommodate both the Internet and EchoStar's DISH Network® satellite TV programming (additional fees apply). StarBand service can bring the Internet and hundreds of channels of television into your home, all through one dish antenna.

Always-On Access: StarBand service features always-on Internet access, with no wait to reconnect every time you want to surf the Web or check e-mail. You'll stay connected to the Internet via a high-speed link as long as your computer is on.

High-Speed: StarBand is great for customers seeking up to 10 to 20 times faster speeds than dial-up can provide. With download speeds up to 500 kbps for StarBand Residential (targeted minimum speeds in excess of 150 kbps), downloading a file that used to take up to 5 minutes with dial-up can now take as little as 30 seconds! With StarBand Small Office, download speeds are up to 1 mbps.

Nationwide Availability: StarBand service is available virtually everywhere in the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico so you control your Internet access options regardless of how far away you live from the nearest telephone switch or cable node.

Multicast Capability: As a StarBand subscriber, you will have the opportunity to be part of a unique satellite multicast network. This means that in the future, you will be able to direct your PC to receive channels of high-quality content from top entertainment and information partners, including MP3 files, software downloads, subscription content and more.
