Service hopes to bring broadband to rural US

Dish Network is set to launch its nationwide satellite broadband service in the US. Called dishNET, the service is a collaboration between Dish, ViaSat and Hughes, and hopes to offer the 14.5 million rural residents under-served by DSL and cable internet providers a satellite broadband connection, claimed to be as high as 10Mbps.

Packages for the service start at $40 for 5Mbps down, 1Mbit up and a 10-gigabyte monthly cap, when bundled with a satellite TV package. A higher connection speed reaching 10Mbps downstream and a 20-gigabyte cap is $50 as part of a bundle, but will cost $10 more when bought without a TV package.

The satellite broadband service will commence on October 1st. Dish's wireline broadband service will see a rebranding to dishNET shortly afterwards.
