The world of high-end satcom has an aggressive new player. TeleSea Blue’s four-foot stabilized antenna, North American coverage, and cable modem-like speed are similar to SeaTel’s Wavecall 4003 system but use different satellites and a different business model. The $50,000 initial charge buys complete installation and one year’s maintenance and upgrades; $150 a month extends the lease. Voice calls are $.50 a minute, unlimited Internet runs $1,000 a month. TeleSea operates a direct service and concierge center around the clock and is working on even higher data speeds and expanded coverage.
