WildBlue links your computer to the Internet with a high-speed connection via one of WildBlue's two satellites. Your WildBlue equipment connects your home or small office at speeds much, much faster than a dial-up connection -- in fact, file transfer speeds can be as much as 30 times faster than dial-up. A single 26" satellite mini-dish and a modem are all you need.
Here is a diagram showing a typical WildBlue customer set-up:

Accessing the Internet will be so much more enjoyable and productive once you replace your dial-up connections with WildBlue. Surfing the Internet at high-speeds opens up a WildBlue world full of information and entertainment. You will now be able to surf the Web at lightning-fast speeds, download music and movies, share photos with friends and family, do research and school work, and much, much more.
WildBlue's mini-dish (28" x 26") both receives signals from the WildBlue satellite, and sends signals from the customer up to the satellite. The WildBlue mini-dish can be mounted on a roof, wall or via pole mount in the ground. Professional installation of the WildBlue equipment is provided which will take approximately 2-3 hours.
WildBlue Satellite Modem
A WildBlue modem is required to connect one or more computers to the WildBlue network. WildBlue uses standardized modem technology to offer a low-cost, small satellite modem.
WildBlue works with virtually any modern computer including both PCs and Macs. Your computer will have high-speed Internet access via an ethernet connection to the WildBlue modem, and will work in your home or small office. You may connect your computer directly to the WildBlue modem, or you can attach a wireless hub or router to the WildBlue modem and connect wirelessly.
Customers are required to have up-to-date anti-virus software on their PC(s). WildBlue provides all new customers F-Secure, a leading anti-virus software package, for FREE for the first 12 months of service (a $35 value). F-Secure is available for $2.95 a month after your first year.
WildBlue has 11 gateways located throughout the U.S. and Canada that efficiently connect WildBlue's satellite access network with the Internet. Each gateway consists of microwave, Internet, and other broadband equipment that quickly and efficiently route traffic from the customer's PC to the Internet and back. WildBlue connects the gateways to the Internet via a state-of-the-art fiber backbone.
WildBlue has designed a state-of-the-art Ka-band communications system aboard our own WildBlue-1 satellite and Telesat's Anik F2 satellite, covering the contiguous U.S. with a total of 66 spot beams. Our satellites occupy a geostationary orbit 22,500 miles above the equator at 111.1° West Longitude. WildBlue chose the 20/30 GHz Ka-band frequencies and a spot-beam architecture as the most efficient and effective technology platform to offer broadband via satellite. WildBlue's advanced technology and low cost structure allows us to offer consumers and small office customers higher speeds and lower prices than other satellite broadband companies.
