AlphaStar confirmed for 2012
In addition, AlphaStar is an all wireless broadband internet access delivery network. AlphaStar specializes in providing high speed internet access to unserved and underserved residential and business users, that up to now, have not had high speed access available. AlphaStar uses a hybrid delivery network that combines wireless and satellite technologies. This enables those users in remote and rural areas access that have been restricted in the past due to the inaccessibility of a traditional high speed fiber backbone or cable network to get high-speed Internet Access. AlphaStar is able to provide a combination of wireless and satellite technologies. Satellites can resolve limitations of access to the fiber backbones. Satellites know no boundaries, unlike fiber and cable. They are more economical, faster to deploy and can multicast.
