Satellite internet is becoming a more and more popular choice of internet service in rural areas of the USA. When demand increases, more companies open offering the service. Such is the case with Calera Satellite Service, a new high speed internet provider offering high speed satellite broadband service in 80,000+ cities across America, many of these in rural areas of the United States where no cable or DSL service is available. Three different service plans are offered catering to different types of internet users. Calera is headquartered in Jacksonville, FL and founded by Brent Constantz, a green tech entrepreneur.

Back in April 2013 Dish Network offered up a $25.5 Billion bid to buy out Sprint that they thought was so wrapped up it even had a site setup www.completedishsolution.com (not up anymore, obviously!). Ultimately the deal fell through but the two have now worked out a deal to deliver home internet via a fixed wireless technology. Really this is just a repackaging of Clearwire’s wireless spectrum, which was bought out by Sprint back in July 2013.
The technology will ultimately aim to compete with growing satellite internet options in rural America where inadequate high speed options are the norm.
