. StarBand Announces New 484 Small Office Service


Mclean VA (SPX) Aug 20, 2004
StarBand, a high-speed, two-way satellite Internet provider to residential and small office customers, Thursday announced the national launch of the new StarBand 484 Small Office service.

This new service provides customers the satellite Internet industry leading SOHO upload speeds at an affordable monthly fee ranging from $139.99 to $159.99 per month based on term commitment.

StarBand's 484 service provides download speeds up to 1 Mbps, upload speeds up to 256 kbps in Turbo Max. Customers also receive VPN capabilities, connectivity with Windows, Mac, Unix, and Linux operating systems, fifteen free e-mail accounts with a total of 1.9 Gigabytes of total free storage, 200 MB free basic Web hosting space and one free static IP address.

The system includes a 4-port Ethernet router and is compatible with operating systems supporting TCP/IP protocol (Windows, Macintosh, Linux, Unix, etc.).

"The StarBand 484 system provides the fastest Small Office satellite Internet speeds available," said StarBand's Vice President of Marketing, Howard Lossing.

"The StarBand 484 system's upload speed up to 256 kbps with Turbo Max more than doubles the upload speeds our competition provides. Combined with the robust value added services including 1.9 Gigabytes of e-mail storage, the StarBand 484 is the number one small office Internet service via satellite available on the market."

"During our StarBand 481 Residential product launch in July of this year, I said to stay tuned as the best is yet to come," stated StarBand President and Chief Executive Officer, Zur Feldman.

"The StarBand 484 Small Office service separates us from our competition in this industry. No other small office Internet service via satellite provides upload speeds up to 256 kbps, and certainly not at this price range."

The StarBand 484 Small Office system pricing is suggested at $899.99 for a complete hardware package with a 12-month contract at $149.99 per month or a 36-month contract at $699.99 for the hardware and the monthly fee at $139.99 per month.

StarBand is also introducing a month-by-month service option for $999.99 for the hardware and $159.99 per month. The expansive StarBand dealer network will distribute the StarBand 484 Small Office systems.
