2009 Broadband Stimulus Plan
A Message from Skycasters' President:
As we together face our nation's greatest challenge, we look forward with renewed hope, as advanced by our 44th President, Barack Obama. The recently approved American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) ensures that Broadband access is available to all Americans.
Skycasters can help. We provide high quality, high speed Internet access throughout the United States. In fact, we've been delivering to underserved areas of this great nation since 2001.
Wi-Fi/WiMAX Networks. Specifically, there will be funds available to build Wi-Fi/WiMAX networks to connect small communities that were previously "off the grid" as far as the Internet is concerned. Wi-Fi/WiMAX is often a great solution, but there's still a missing link. How do you connect the Wi-Fi/WiMAX network to the rest of the Internet backbone? Fiber buildouts can be prohibitively expensive, costing $10k-$20k per mile, or more, depending on the terrain. Satellite is a viable alternative in these situations. If your business is building Wi-Fi/WiMAX networks, or you are responsible for overseeing one of these implementations, please, give us a call, or click here to have one of our Sales Engineers contact you.
Hospitals and Schools. As part of the Federal Stimulus Plan, there is support to rebuild and modernize our hospitals and schools. And a big part of this modernization effort will be to make sure that high speed Internet is part of the equation. Again, Skycasters is here to help. We provide high speed data services to schools and hospitals throughout North America. We even offer an e-rate discount for qualifying educational institutions. We are all in this together - so let us help! Give us a call, or click here to have one of our Sales Engineers contact you.
Highways. Another significant initiative of President Obama's Stimulus Plan is the rebuilding of our nation's infrastructure. Here at Skycasters, we're all in favor of that. We're headquartered in Akron, Ohio, and we see aging infrastructure every day. So let's go fill some potholes, and build new bridges. The reality is that if you are going to do a construction project in the 21st century, you need reliable communications to the site. Not just cell phones, but real IP communications for emailing documents, verifying plans and work orders, etc. If you are in the construction business, whether in a job site trailer office or right there on the side of-what's-gonna-be-a-road-when-you-get-done-with-it, Skycasters can help.
Energy. Our nation sure uses a lot of it. Mostly, our energy comes out of the ground -- fossil fuels. Skycasters knows all about that. Many of our customers are in the oil fields of west Texas or the coal mines of Kentucky and West Virginia, working hard, 24/7, to keep this country running. And Skycasters is right there with them, providing critical communications between the site and the geologists at headquarters, making sure that we use our natural resources wisely.
But we all know that business as usual won't last forever. High Gas Prices, Foreign Oil, Global Warming... all bad. Part of President Obama's plan to put America back on top is for us to become a worldwide leader in the development of green energy technology. That means a lot of things to a lot of people, but here at Skycasters, we know it means job site communications during the building process, and productions monitoring systems once it's operational. And that means Skycasters' satellite communications systems can help. One site, or a hundred sites. SCADA data from a wind turbine farm, or pump stations on a natural gas pipeline, Skycasters can help. Give us a call, or click here to have one of our Sales Engineers contact you.
While our nation faces what some have called the greatest economic challenge since the Great Depression, we at Skycasters are choosing to see things a bit differently. America is in a period of transition, to be sure, but we'll come out on top, and, as a nation, we will be stronger for having gone through this.
Skycasters is proud to help you build our future.
All the best,
