Broadband Satellite Capacity

Available Today – More Capacity Coming in 2016









10–15 Mbps

5 Mbps


(Hughes)/WildBlue-1 (ViaSat)

EchoStar XVII (Hughes)/ViaSat-1 (ViaSat)

10–20+ Mbps

Next-Generation HTS –

Two More Satellites:

20+ Mbps end-user services

HTS Satellites in Operation –Two Satellites:EchoStar® XVII, ViaSat-1200+ Gbps5–15 Mbps end-user servicesCurrently 1.5 Million customers between Hughes and ViaSat

First-Generation HTS –Two Satellites:SPACEWAY® 3, WildBlue-114 Gbps1–5 Mbps end-user services

(HTS: High Throughput Satellites)Slide3

The Economic Necessity for Satellite Broadband

Households per Square Mile


Broadband satellite infrastructure investment is the same across all densities. It is the most economic technology to deploy at lower household densities

Terrestrial broadband infrastructure deployment costs increase dramatically as household density falls

Wireline is economic at densities above ~70 households per square mileSlide4

Broadband Satellite –

A Key Component to Rural Coverage

It’s available where you live: Anywhere in the country – no matter how remote

It’s available today: No new infrastructure build-out requirement

It’s fast, secure, reliable High-throughput satellites have dramatically changed the landscape

We are going to more than double the available capacity in the next 3 yearsSatellite broadband is the most cost-effective solution for less densely populated areasThe Satellite Broadband Industry should be included in any program aimed at encouraging the deployment of broadband infrastructure.
