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.
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.
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.
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.
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
