Echostar wants $1bn in stimulus

EchoStar Corp. has gone for broke in seeking funds from the federal governments broadband stimulus programme. In its latest proposal, EchoStar has teamed up with ViaSat in a satellite broadband project seeking $483 million in stimulus funds from the Federal Government.

The project would build and launch a new satellite which would provide download speeds of up to 8 megabits per second in all or parts of 20 states west of the Mississippi River. That brings to three the projects which EchoStar has pitched seeking a combined $1.1 billion, from the governments broadband stimulus program. Other projects include EchoBlue Rural, a partnership with WildBlue Communications, and a proposal to provide broadband from existing EchoStar satellites used for the DISH Network.
